Maputo Accord for Peace and National Reconciliation
Agreement on the Definitive Cessation of Military Hostilities
On 1 August 2019, President Filipe Nyusi and the President of Renamo Ossufo Momade signed the Agreement on the Definitive Cessation of Military Hostilities in Gorongosa National Park. The agreement builds on the MoU on Military Affairs signed in August 2018, with both parties reaffirming their desire to see a future of peace and reconciliation in Mozambique and prioritisation of dialogue as a means for settling grievances.
Memorandum of Understanding on Military Affairs
On 23 May 2018, Parliament unanimously approved a revision of the constitution to deepen decentralisation as part of the peace negotiations between the Government and Renamo. The bill provides administrative and financial autonomy for municipal, provincial and district bodies, while issues of national interest such as defence, security and natural resources will continue to be managed at the central level.
