Mozambique's government

Mozambique's government should combine its military response to a spiraling insurgency in its gas-rich north with aid to disillusioned communities and dialogue with militants.

This is according to a new report by the International Crisis Group.

In the report, the group says Mozambique will need to resolve "the set of local factors that have spurred militants into battle" in order to stem the violence.

Islamic State-linked jihadists have been terrorizing the impoverished Cabo Delgado province since 2017, ransacking villages and towns.

Channel Africa’s Khumbelo Munzhelele spoke to Dino Mahtani, Main author of the report, to discuss the report’s findings further.
