Zimbabwe President Emmerson Mnangagwa has expressed concern over the recent reports of terrorist activity in neighboring Mozambique which poses threat to security of the region.

This comes as Islamist militants beheaded more than 50 people, chopped up the bodies of victims and abducted women in a gruesome attack in Mozambique recently.

According to media reports, the bodies of dismembered victims were found scattered across a forest clearing on Monday after a football pitch was turned into an ‘execution ground’. 

“I am deeply shocked by recent reports of terrorist activity in Mozambique. These acts of barbarity must be stamped out wherever they are found,” President Mnangagwa tweeted.

“Zimbabwe is ready to assist in any way we can. The security of our region is paramount in the protection of our people.”

Amnesty International said more than 2 000 people have died and 300 000 displaced since 2017 in the gas-rich Cabo Delgado province owing to gruesome attacks by extremists.
