AN envoy from Mozambican President Filipe Nyusi has delivered a special message to President Emmerson Mnangagwa.
The Mozambican special envoy, Julio Dosantos Jane General delivered the special message to President Emmerson Mnangagwa at his Munhumutapa offices in Harare this Wednesday.
Julio told journalists after a closed door meeting that the special message to President Mnangagwa touched on existing bilateral relations between Zimbabwe and Mozambique in all sectors.
“I was send by My President Nyusi to his counterpart President Mnangagwa with a special message. As you know we are sister nations with strong common history hence it is important to always share notes. So we discussed bilateral relations in all sectors with the President.
“As you may know, the cooperation between the two countries are historic relations. They are two-sister countries, sister Republics, therefore, for this reason from time-to-time there is need for exchange of information regarding the cooperation.
“In general terms we did touch on various areas of cooperation,” he said
Zimbabwe and Mozambique share strong bilateral relations which date back to the days of the liberation struggle. On the economic front, Zimbabwe is getting power from Mozambique to ease load-shedding.
Zimbabwe has obtained an additional 100 megawatts from Mozambique, effective October 1, 2019, as Government continues to address power shortages that have resulted in long hours of load-shedding.
Zimbabwe also relies on Mozambique on transportation of fuel from the Port of Beira through the Feruka pipeline.
Nearly 42 000 tonnes of drought relief maize is on the way from Mozambique to Zimbabwe.
Four trains with 40 wagons each have since been despatched to Zimbabwe, while authorities in Mozambique were loading additional wagons.
Zimbabwean Ambassador to Mozambique, Douglas Nyikayaramba has since applauded Mozambican authorities for cooperating with the Zimbabwean team in the movement of the grain.
