South Africa’s National Defense Force (SANDF) has sent troops to repatriate South Africans from Mozambique as the conflict intensifies.
The decision by South Africa to send troops to Mozambique comes after confirmed reports that one South African died following an attack on the town of Palma.
eNCA reports that South Africa’s President Cyril Ramaphosa said soldiers were in Cabo Delgado trying to evacuate the country’s citizens.
SADC is yet to respond to the conflict in Mozambique with Botswana’s President Mokgweetsi Masisi saying the southern African regional body will respond in an appropriate manner to ensure that the country’s sovereignty is not assaulted.
Masisi made the remarks Wednesday after meeting President Emmerson Mnangagwa at the State House in Harare. He said:
Sadc will respond in a helpful manner to ensure that the integrity and sovereignty of one of our own is never to be assaulted by dissident, rebellious and non-state acting forces that undermine the democratic credentials of peace and stability.
SADC has been criticized for procrastinating in intervening in the member country even after hundreds have been reportedly killed while thousands have been displaced.
