Greeting the returning refugee

Above: A returning Mozambican refugee, who spent four years in exile as a result of the long conflict with RENAMO, being greeted by his nephew with an embrace as friends and neighbours look on.

A piece for the Southern African Review of Books by Alex Vines carried the above headline. Vines argues that although Renamo was created by the Rhodesians and taken over by South Africa's apartheid regime, "it is now clear that it very rapidly took on a Mozambican dimension as well" and that as outside support had faded, it had also become more violent. During the month it was reported that Renamo was ambushing and attacking food convoys in the north.
