South Africa’s businessman Tokyo Sexwale says what is happening in Mozambique is a rebellion by the country’s people against poor living conditions.

Sexwale, who has interests in Mozambique, says, “Our own workers there are in touch, people are dying. They have information on the ground about how weapons are being accumulated, the movement of some of these groupings. These are not just people from Timbuktu or some other place. They are from Mozambique. These are people reacting to the conditions that are there,” explains Sexwale

Meanwhile, ISIS says at least 55 people were killed and buildings including factories and banks taken and destroyed and vehicles seized.

Fighting continued on Monday this week, according to a security source directly involved in efforts to secure the town.

The government confirmed on Sunday that dozens of people had died, when their convoy of cars was ambushed during an escape attempt.
