Mozambique urges firms’ return to attack-hit region


Mozambican President Filipe Nyusi has encouraged private companies to resume operations in Palma in Cabo Delgado province, where activities have been paralysed since March last year following jihadist attacks

President Nyusi said there were signs that security had been restored as a result of actions by joint forces of Mozambique, Rwanda and the regional bloc Sadc.

He said resumption of businesses would be put pressure on the state’s own security to protect the industrial projects in progress in the region.
