The two have formally approved an agreement on the cessation of hostilities on both sides.
Commending the two for their commitment, President Zuma on Monday said: “The South African Government wished for continued peace, stability and prosperity for the people of Mozambique”.
The agreement to end military hostilities in Mozambique was signed initially by the heads of negotiating teams namely Jose Pacheco, from the government and by Saimone Macuiana from Renamo, last month.
The Mozambican Parliament will hold an extraordinary meeting this week in order to ratify the deal and make it into a law.
Mozambique will hold its fifth general elections on October 15.
With the endorsement of the agreement to end the hostilities, the leader of Renamo, who is also the party’s candidate for the October 15 presidential elections, can now freely start his electoral campaign.
