Mozambique President Filipe Nyusi Says Jihadists are Retreating Following the Deployment of Soldiers by SADC, Rwanda

The President of Mozambique Filipe Nyusi says the troops deployed by African countries to help Mozambique fight the jihadists is gaining ground.

Nyusi revealed the good news while addressing the nation on the crisis that was triggered when the insurgents in March attacked the coastal town of Palma, near natural gas projects worth $60 billion that are meant to transform Mozambique’s economy.

The insurgency has caused total paralysis in mineral activity, agriculture and infrastructure development in the region, he said.

Meanwhile, the Rwandan Soldiers deployed by Paul Kagame have managed to kill atleast 30 jihadists near Palma.

The President of Botswana Mokgweetsi Masisi also deployed the Botswana Defence Forces to support the government of Mozambique in fighting the jihadists.
