SADC to provide humanitarian aid to Mozambique IDPs: diplomat

The East African | The Southern African Development Community (SADC) announced Monday that it will assist Cabo Delgado returnees who fled the area after terror assaults.

The war, which began in October 2017, is thought to have displaced over 820,000 people and killed an estimated 3,000 others.

According to Wizi Moyo, Malawi's ambassador to Mozambique, the community is striving to provide humanitarian relief to people returning to their homes.

"We recognize that victims of terrorism want everything to return to normal life," Ms. Moyo added, "but we will assure food to avoid starving situations in areas where there has been armed conflict based on our capacities and vision."

"Our emphasis is still focused on maintaining public order and tranquility, as well as confronting the armed gang terrorizing the population."

As SADC ambassadors and high commissioners began a three-day tour to Cabo Delgado's capital, Pemba, the ambassador addressed journalists in a news conference.
