The insurgency in Mozambique’s Cabo Delgado province has killed more than 3 000 people and displaced 800 000 since it began in 2017. The situation in Mozambique has the potential to destabilise the whole region and South Africa can ill afford for the insurgency to spill across the border.

This one-day event will examine regional and international efforts to counter the violence in Mozambique.

It will provide an overview of the past to present situation in Cabo Delgado and its Islamist-based insurgency, breaking it down from political, social and economic perspectives.

It will focus on the military/security response and look at the role of external forces, including the Rwandan and Southern African Development Community (SADC) intervention, the role of private security companies and defence firms, the need for security by oil and gas investors and the humanitarian response to the crisis.

More transparency needed from Rwanda, Mozambique on counter-insurgency – Louw-Vaudran

External military forces in the insurgent-torn Cabo Delgado province in northern Mozambique have done an effective job so far in quelling a brutal Islamist insurgency. Recapturing villages, dislodging insurgents from bases and seizing weapons and warfare material are notable successes by Rwandan and Southern African Development Community (SADC) Mission in Mozambique (SAMIM) forces.

Repurposing of SANDF needed to tackle terrorism and border insecurity – Kobus Marais

The insurgency by Al Sunnah wa Jama’ah (ASWJ) in northern Mozambique’s Cabo Delgado has provided an opportunity for Southern African Development Community (SADC) member states to gain practical experience in the fight against terrorism. Combatting the relatively new threat, at least for SADC states, means militaries, including the South African National Defence Force (SANDF), shifting away from conventional warfare.
