Cabo Delgado: Nyusi says terrorist actions aim to recruit children and young people

 Cabo Delgado: Nyusi diz que ações de terroristas visam recrutar crianças e jovens

The President of the Republic, Filipe Nyusi, said on Wednesday that the movement of terrorists in Cabo Delgado is aimed at recruiting children and young people.

"We learned that in the second half of last month there was a lot of movement by the terrorists. They came down from Mocojo and were heading for Mituge, Micufe and Chiúre. They wanted to recruit in this area, but couldn't because of the young people's conscience."

Nyusi made these statements after meeting with the military leaders of SADC and Rwanda to find out about the state of combat readiness.

Speaking to the press, Filipe Nyusi acknowledged that there was a "considerable number of displaced people as a result of the new wave of terrorist attacks in various districts of Cabo Delgado."

"A significant number of people move from one area to another. Even those who left a long time ago have now stabilized their lives. People can't wait endlessly for support," he said.

During his visit to Cabo Delgado province, Nyusi was accompanied by the Minister of Defense, Cristovão Chume; the Minister of Public Works, Housing and Water Resources, Carlos Mesquita; the Minister of Transport and Communications, Mateus Magala; and the president of the National Institute for Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (INGD), Luísa Celma Meque.
