South Africa reinforces its Mission in Mozambique in the wake of attacks
The Government of the Republic of South Africa has noted with concern the recent attacks in Palma, northern Mozambique, against foreign nationals which took place on Friday, 26 March 2021.
It is with grave concern to note that South Africans were also affected by these attacks.
In this regard, South Africa, through its Mission in Maputo is working with the local authorities on verifications, as well as providing the necessary consular services.
The Mission in Mozambique is being re-enforced with additional staff in order to handle the work at hand of locating, identifying and responding to the respective needs of the affected.
South Africa stands ready to work with the Government of Mozambique in pursuit of lasting peace and stability.
