SADC MISSION IN MOZAMBIQUE ENDS—PM

Maseru, March 25 – Prime Minister Mr. Ntsokoane Matekane says the Southern African Development Community (SADC) Mission in Mozambique (SAMMIM) will come to an end in July this year.

The Prime Minister said this in the National Assembly when speaking over the Appropriation (2024/2025) Bill, 2024 which was passed by the Members on Monday.

Mr. Matekane said the decision to withdraw SAMMIM was reached at the SADC Special Summit held in Lusaka, Zambia on Saturday.

He explained that the SADC Special Summit was going to address peace and security in both the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and in Mozambique.

The Prime Minister confirmed that the Lesotho Defence Force (LDF) contingent in Mozambique will be coming back home, since Mozambique has been given a chance to choose which country will remain in that country.

Speaking about the Appropriation Bill, Mr. Matekane said he was aware of challenges facing the country such as poor roads and bridges infrastructure, high rate of crime in which killings and stock theft are high.

He assured the Members and the nation at large that the Government has equipped the security agencies with equipment they need in order to fight crime and to ensure that every Mosotho lives in peace in the country.
