President Guebuza exonerates Mozambique’s Attorney General

Mozambican President, Armando Guebuza, has today (9 July) exonerated the country’s Attorney General.

The detention of Renamo’s speaker, António Muchanga, by national authorities is behind the decision. The Attorney General’s critics to the government’s arbitrary arrest worsened the already tense relations between him and President Guebuza, culminating in his exoneration

Are we witnessing the surge of a less tolerant Frelimo? Is this crackdown on opposition voices going to continue? What will be Renamos’s response? And what about that of other political movements, such as the MDM?

These are bad news for Mozambique’s fragile democracy.
