Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.
The random article for Friday, 6 September 2019 is RENAMO insurgency (2013–2019).
The RENAMO insurgency was a guerrilla campaign by militants of the RENAMO party in Mozambique. The insurgency is widely considered to be an aftershock of the Mozambican Civil War; it resulted in renewed tensions between RENAMO and Mozambique's ruling FRELIMO coalition over charges of state corruption and the disputed results of 2014 general elections. A ceasefire was announced between the government and the rebels in September 2014. However renewed tensions sparked violence in mid-2015.
On August 1, 2019, President Filipe Nyusi and RENAMO leader Ossufo Momade signed a peace agreement at RENAMO's remote military base in the Gorongosa mountains which brought an end to hostilities. The last remaining REMANO fighters afterwards surrendered their weapons. Another peace agreement was then signed by Nyusi and Momade in Maputo's Peace Square on August 6, 2019.
