A United Nations Peace Building Commission visited, last weekend, the town of Mocímboa da Praia, to understand the causes of terrorism that plagues the province of Cabo Delgado since October 2017. The General Commander of the PRM, Bernardino Rafael, one of the members of the delegation from the Mozambican side, pointed out that the mentors of terrorist ideology in Cabo Delgado are citizens from countries such as the Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda, Tanzania and Rwanda, assisted by Somalis and Yemenis. Bernardino Rafael named Abdul Aziz, a Tanzanian national, Abdul Faizal, a Ugandan, Beckham and Fatumata Capacita, both Rwandans, as the first masterminds of terrorism in Cabo Delgado. “In the first phase, the phase in which we were attacked, we were not sure who they were, but in the second phase we were able to consider that they were terrorists. In the third phase, all types of operations begin and the tendency for the situation to improve, with taking into account that there are areas to which the population was already returning”, explained the head of the Mozambican Police. Later, the General Commander of the PRM revealed that the terrorists wanted to establish a Khalifado (Islamic government). “The terrorists wanted to establish a Khalifate from the coastal part of Palma to more or less Quissanga. And we explained (the Peace Building Commission) that they are people from the Democratic Congo, Tanzania, a part of Somalia and others from Yemen and Uganda”, declared Bernardino Rafael, when speaking at a stop with corporation agents in Cabo Delgado. The United Nations Peacebuilding Commission also visited the district of Metuge, one of those that received the largest number of people displaced from the terrorist attacks in the province of Cabo Delgado.
