Mozambique opposition chief registers for October vote, says wants peace
VUNDUZI, Mozambique (Reuters) - Mozambique's Renamo opposition leader Afonso Dhlakama registered on Thursday as a voter for a presidential election in October, which would legally allow him to run as a candidate, a witness to his registration said.
Dhlakama, who has lived in the bush for more than a year to escape what he said was government persecution, told reporters he was interested in finalizing a deal with President Armando Guebuza's Frelimo administration to maintain peace in Mozambique and end a low-level Renamo insurgency.
