Speaking to journalists in Harare on Tuesday, Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Minister Monica Mutsvangwa, said:
His Excellency President Mnangagwa informed Cabinet that the Government of Mozambique and the Renamo rebel movement were due to sign a ceasefire agreement today (yesterday).
The agreement will entail the full integration of Renamo into Mozambique’s civil and public administration systems. Cabinet applauds this positive development, which is a significant step towards sustainable regional peace and stability.
