Mozambique’s hidden debt trial may shake up politics

Friday, December 16, 2022

Significance

The verdict saw major political figures condemned to jail sentences of up to twelve years. However, although this is an important step to end this saga, the case still has several loose ends and the consequences for Mozambican politics are yet to unfold fully.

Impacts

  • With new funding and new troops, the Rwandan military mission in Cabo Delgado will be better equipped to defend crucial gas installations.
  • With improved security and rising demand for gas, TotalEnergies may think about restarting its gas project in Cabo Delgado in 2023.
  • As international support to Mozambique resumes, the economy should start recovering.
