The terrorist attack recorded last Friday at the Administrative Post of Olumbe, Palma district, Cabo Delgado province, forced more than a thousand people from that point in the country to leave, natives and war displaced persons, who had in that Administrative Post the safest place in that district. Data provided by our sources indicate that, although the attack was frustrated by the Defense and Security Forces (FDS), the terrorists allegedly informed that they intended to occupy that Administrative Post, so the population was ordered to leave the place. It should be noted that the aforementioned attack was confirmed by the President of the Republic, during the opening of the Session of the Frelimo Central Committee, which took place last weekend. At the time, Nyusi stated that the terrorists had murdered five alleged fellow deserters. Our sources have not confirmed this figure. According to the sources, the population of Olumbe is said to have taken shelter in Maganja, a village located on the coastal zone of the district, very close to the Mozambique LNG project, led by the French petrochemical company Total. Part of the population that left Olumbe comes from the headquarters town of the district of Palma, from where they left after the terrorist attack of the 24th of March. As in other parts of the province of Cabo Delgado, in particular the district of Palma, in Maganja there are also reports of famine due to food shortages. There are also no security conditions, a fact that makes the population vulnerable to insurgent offensives. In fact, Maganja is a stopover point, since everyone intends to leave the district of Palma towards the city of Pemba, the provincial capital of Cabo Delgado. At this time, the boat is the only means of transport available for transporting the displaced from Palma to Pemba. It should be stressed that the terrorist attacks have lasted for more than three years, being responsible for the deaths of more than 2,000 people (including civilians, military and members of the terrorist group) and the departure of more than 800,000 people from their places of origin.
