Mozambique at 40
Mozambique is marking its 40th anniversary of independence this week.The official date is June 25th and for the diaspora, celebrations have already begun. But while the country is celebrating, it continues to grapple with other issues.
"If you look at the factors underlining politics at the moment, many of the same issue now that we're talking about were on the table in the 1990s. For example (...] how to promote accountability in provincial governments, how to balance rural Mozambique with the essential administration. All of these substantive questions still don't have answers." -- Charlotte King, analyst for The Economist Intelligence Unit
