Mozambique President Nyusi is all set to visit Uganda

The President of Mozambique ‘Filipe Jacinto Nyusi’ is planning to visit Uganda next week on Wednesday, April 27, for a three-day state visit at the invitation of President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni.

Nyusi is also recent in charge of FRELIMO. The party that has governed Mozambique since its freedom from Portugal in 1975 will be attended by the First Lady of Mozambique, Isaura Nyusi, and a government delegation.

Not only President Filipe Nyusi is going to visit, but also his wife Isaura Nyusi will visit several places of mutual interest and will later be hosted by President Museveni and the First Lady Janet Kataaha Museveni at State House Entebbe. 

This is Nyusi’s return visit following President Yoweri Museveni’s three-day visit to Mozambique in May 2018. He visited the legendary Montepuez Barracks, where he led 28 FRONASA youth in training in 1976.

The trip of Museveni to Mozambique was partly to thank the Mozambique Liberation Front (FRELIMO) for their role in the liberation movements across the mainland. 

FRELIMO helped Uganda to shape Salvation (FRONASA), which was part of the foundation of Uganda’s National Liberation Army (UNLA), National Resistance Army (NRA), and later the UPDF. 

During the visit, President Museveni was accompanied then by the three remaining survivors from the group of 28 freedom fighters he led to Mozambique.

They are Gen Caleb Akandwanaho aka Salim Saleh, Lt Gen Ivan Koreta and Col Bosco Omule.
