Filipe Nyusi, the current national leader of Mozambique and the ruling Frelimo’s main candidate in the upcoming elections, has promised he would heavily reform the country’s judicial system in order to ensure fast and effective trials.
According to the reports, the president wants to grant more authority to the extra-judicial means of solving the disputes, in particular, mediation and arbitration.
“We must have the same courage that dictated we work on decentralisation, in order to reform the justice system”, Nyusi announced at the academics’ meeting in Maputo.
Besides that, the leader mentioned several minor changes including the renaming of the Constitutional Council into a Constitutional Court — a measure which doesn’t bring any significant modification into the institution’s work but reflects the reality.
Speaking on the other issues the nation struggles to deal with, Nyusi stated he would battle the existing corruption not only within the government but in the church and various other areas of private and public sectors.
