Mozambique: President Nyusi pardons alleged terrorists in Nampula

The President of Mozambique, Filipe Nyusi, granted in Nampula, pardon to 25 citizens who were allegedly part of the terrorist group, which since 2017 attacks the northern province of Cabo Delgado.
They were presented as recruited in the districts of Memba, Nacala-Porto, Mogovolas and Mogincual, with promises of employment.
Nyusi said that the pardoned citizens responded to appeals from the government and pressure on the ground, the result of military intervention by Mozambique, Rwanda and SADC, and turned themselves in voluntarily.
One of the pardoned, Adelino Amisse, said he was recruited in the Mogincual district of Nampula province and participated in the terrorist attacks in the village of Olumbi in the Palma district of Cabo Delgado.
“The President may grant pardon, but these people will be inserted in communities where in the past they committed terror,” said university professor Teodósio Miguel.
For Miguel, the population must be sensitized to forget the wounds of the past.
