Human rights situation in Mozambique

The FRELIMO-led government and the main opposition party, RENAMO, reached a peace deal aimed at disarming RENAMO’s forces and integrating them into the national security apparatus.  However, one faction of RENAMO refused to recognise the deal and began launching armed attacks.

Cyclones Idai and Kenneth ravaged parts of central and northern Mozambique in March and April respectively, killing some 600 people, and causing over US$2billion damage to infrastructure, homes, livestock, food and water sources and the livelihoods of over 2million people. The government response was inadequate, and disturbing allegations also emerged that women survivors were forced to trade sex for food aid.
