Mozambique: Renamo Attacks Health Centre in Niassa Province

Gunmen from Mozambique’s opposition party Renamo on Sunday morning attacked a health centre and a police station in the administrative post of Muapula in the northern province of Niassa.

According to Radio Mozambique, the armed men stole medicines and surgical equipment from the health centre.

Local nurse Catarina Maloa said that the gunmen fired several shots at the police station and the residence of the head of the administrative post. She added, “they took medicines, vaccines, batteries, and all the equipment from the maternity ward”.

This is the second theft by Renamo gunmen from a health centre this month. On 6 July, a Renamo gang attacked the health centre in the village of Banga in Tsangano district, in the western province of Tete.
