President Paul Kagame participated in events for Mozambique Armed Forces Day on Saturday, September 25, alongside his host President Filipe Nyusi.
On the second day of his visit, President Kagame and President Nyusi were shown how the country’s maritime services execute counter-terror operations and support logistics operations on the coast using specialized boats at a beachside navy facility.
The yearly ceremony is a significant day for the Mozambican Armed Forces (FADM).
In 1964, the Mozambique Liberation Front (FRELIMO) launched its first onslaught against the Portuguese colonial overlords, which is also known as Revolution Day.
This was the start of the country’s liberation struggle. It all began at a town named Chai in Cabo Delgado, where Gen Alberto Chipande, the commander in chief of the group that launched the initial attack, was in charge.
