Mozambique: sacked minister appointed envoy to Rwanda

The Mozambican President Filipe Nyusi has appointed Amade Miquidade, an interior minister recently sacked as the country’s high commissioner to Rwanda.

Amade Miquidade was dismissed from office last week and was replaced by the country’s first woman interior minister, Arsenia Massingue, two days later.

Before his dismissal, he was one of the top defence and security figures dealing with insecurity in the northern region, which has been hit by jihadist attacks for the last three years.
