I have now been home in Inhassoro since Sunday 6th March, 2016.
From all the contacts I have been able to get in touch with I have the following.
There was a Truck which was burned and the driver shot in the hand on the Muxungwe Road, this incident lead to the institution of the convoy along the Muxungwe – Save River Bridge on the EN1.
Since THIS convoy started running there have been no further incidents on the Muxungwe – Save River Bridge Road.
There is however another Convoy which is running much further north in the area of Caia up on the Zambezi River (800-1000 Km. North of Inhassoro) This convoy has seen a lot of attacks.
There have also been reported incidents on the Chimoio-Tete Road near Catandika where a red Nagi Nagi Bus driver was shot and killed and there were quite a few injuries from the resulting accident when the bus went off the road and hit a tree, and fighting within the Tete Province. Information of this is not accurate down here as we are pretty far away from the action and 3rd and 4th hand information is greatly exaggerated and not very reliable. We are far from this area so I cannot vouch for this info it is all hearsay.
I was also contacted about an alleged attack on a holiday resort in Vilanculos where 2 foreigners were allegedly abducted or had gone missing. I would just like to say that this was a complete fabrication and that no such incident ever occurred.
Please to all the holiday makers out there who want to come to Mozambique for their holidays PLEASE CHECK WITH THE RESORTS WHERE THEY ARE GOING TO to verify rumours before they make hasty decisions and cancel holidays on false rumours.
Hope this report helps.
It is good to be back I just wish we did not have to endure this problem of convoys again.
