Mozambique leader calls for calm after Dhlakama’s death


    The president of Mozambique has urged people to do everything they can to keep the peace process on track, following the death of the opposition leader Afonso Dhlakama.

    President Filipe Nyusi said Dhlakama had been working hard to restore peace between his movement Renamo and Mozambique’s government.

    Hundreds of armed Renamo supporters remain in the bush, where Dhlakama lived for several years prior to his death on Thursday.

    Analysts say it is unclear what will happen to them now, as power was concentrated in the hands of  Dhlakama.
