THE Sadc Organ on Politics, Defence  and Security Cooperation – including Mozambique – s currently holding a one-day Extraordinary Organ Troika Summit of Heads of State and Goverment, amid Islamists insurgences in Mozambique.

The emergency Extraordinary Troika Summit comes at the behest  of Mozambique to have Sadc help deal with that country’s current precarious internal security situation. 

Expected to be in attendance at the one-day Troika meeting in Harare will be the entity’s outgoing chairperson, Zimbabwe’s President Emmerson Mnangagwa, Edgar Lunga of Zambia, Botswana’s Mokgweetsi Masisi and President Filepe Nyusi of Mozambique.

AFP’s Marco Longari last month reported that the “Islamic insurgency operating in Mozambique’s northern Cabo Delgado province was showing increased tactical capacity, outmaneuvering a government hobbled by strategic mistakes, capacity shortfalls, and an evolving COVID-19”.

There are now fears within Sadc that the ongoing civil war in Mozambique could spillover, potentially disrupting the already shacky socioeconomic and political situation in the sub-region.
