An unidentified shooter allegedly from the self-styled “Renamo Military Junta” has ambushed four cars near the border of Gorongosa and Nhamatanda districts.
According to Gorongosa mayor, Sabeti Morais, this was the third incident in a series of attacks to occur in the area since August.
Luckily, the motorists managed to drive away from the scene with several injuries, while nobody has reportedly died.
The reports suggest that Renamo Military Junta, a dissident group within the former Mozambican rebel movement Renamo, wants to disrupt the upcoming national elections scheduled to October.
Junta leader Mariano Nhongo previously told the press the government forces had also attacked their base in the neighbouring Chipindaumwe province, hence the recent ambush near the Pungue River was explained as a revenge.
