The Southern African Development Community (SADC) summit on politics, defence and security issues has condemned terrorist attacks that have been reported in the recent days in Cabo Delgado Northern province of Mozambique.
The summit of heads of 16-member states delivered a stern warning to the terrorists. They delivered the warning in the meeting that was held by the member states in Harare, Capital of Zimbabwe which was chaired by President of Zimbabwe Emmerson Mnangagwa.
President Felipe Nyusi of Mozambique attended the meeting as well, and it was convened by the executive secretary Stergomena Tax, after consulting the chairman of SADC Dr John Magufuli to discuss the terrorism issue in Mozambique.
Almost 28 terrorist incidents have been recorded and over 400 citizens have died while 100,000 others displaced in the Cabo Delgado province since 2017. Ahlu Sunna Wa-Jama among other insurgent groups has claimed themselves responsible for the attacks.
Dr Tax said that the terror attacks have prevailed for more than two years as the summit have been following closely. Mozambique raised the concern of the attacks and asked SADC to assist in solving the problem.
According to the summit, they agreed on close follow-ups and monitoring the insurgency following President Nyusi’s request slamming all the ongoing insurgent activities.
