Mozambique’s President Filipe Nyusi reaches peace deal with opposition leader

Mozambique’s President Filipe Nyusi and opposition Renamo leader Ossufo Momade has announced an apparent breakthrough in peace negotiations over the integration of former rebels into the police and army.

The disarmament and integration of Renamo fighters has been a major sticking point in talks, with the government demanding the immediate disbanding of Renamo armed units.

The government and Renamo, which has maintained an armed militant wing, have been in peace talks after unrest erupted between 2013 and 2016.
