If you remember friend, sometime back I blogged about the possibility of a civil war in this country. At that time it was just rumours today after the oppositions army base was attacked and occupied by the national army with the apparent aim of either killing the opposition leader or capturing him (of which they didn’t succeed) things have taken a definite turn for the worst. I will not enter the realm of trying to explain in greater detail what the political problems are, I am no expert on such matters. The fact is in the North of Mozambique where the attack happened it is reported that communities have fled their homes for fear of being caught in the cross fire. The horrors of the last war are still very fresh in most of the older generations minds.
It is said when the civil war started back in the 80s most people thought it was a joke that it was the empty talk of politicians and angry men … for the sake of this nation may this be the case for us this time around. Hope is always the last to die!
Please pray for us, pray for peace…knowing how the international media acts the problems occurring in this country may only hit the spotlight if something worse happens.
