The Department of International Relations and Cooperation acknowledges the attack on a group of South African citizens in Mozambique over the weekend and the media interest that this incident has generated.

The Department wishes to confirm that  South Africa’s High Commissioner to Mozambique, Dikgang Moopeloa remains seized with this matter and is in close contact with the Mozambican authorities in this regard.  The High Commission is rendering consular assistance to the victims.

It is indeed regrettable that  South African citizens were befallen by this unfortunate incident.
