This week's 42nd Ordinary Summit of Heads of State and Government of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) will be placed in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). President Cyril Ramaphosa will head a team there. Currently serving as the chair of the SADC Organ on Politics, Security, and Defense, Ramaphosa will present a report on the SADC military presence in Mozambique.
Insurgents who have terrorized the area since 2017 have been attacking the province of Cabo Delgado nonstop. The assaults are still happening, according to South Africa's Minister of International Relations and Cooperation, Naledi Pandor, and the SADC leaders will debate this security issue. The minister says, "We are going to report on the progress that has been made in relation to the promised deployment as well as a provision of support to our personnel from the various SADC countries as well as the bilateral partnership that Mozambique has with Rwanda - they have been working closely with our SADC forces."
Pandor observes that local terror organizations are still active and causing harm to local populations in the northern province of Mozambique. The intergovernmental organization, according to her, would consider other measures and interventions that could be available to address this problem. She highlighted her dissatisfaction with the SADC nations' tardy intervention in the Mozambique conflict during a speech she gave in May at an event honoring the African Union's 20th anniversary.
