The Republic of South Africa and the Republic of Mozambique will jointly host a ceremony to honour the late Former President of the Republic of Mozambique and his comrades, Cde Samora Machel. This year, 2021, marks the 35th anniversary since the passing of President Machel. The ceremony will take place at the accident site in Mbuzini, with government leaders from both Mozambique and South Africa scheduled to attend.

The late Mozambican President and his compatriots died when their plane, Tupolev TU134A-3, crashed in the Lebombo Mountains South African site in 1986 on his way back from a Summit in Lusaka, with African Leaders. It is alleged the South African Apartheid regime was responsible for the assassination of the former President of FREELIMO and Mozambique respectively.

His Excellency President Cyril Ramaphosa and his Excellency President Filipe Nyusi are scheduled to speak at the event and lay wreaths.

“LONG LIVE THE FIGHTING SPIRIT OF COMRADE SAMORA MACHEL”
