Welcome to another edition of the Zitamar Podcast.
Today, regular guest Fernando Lima, a senior Mozambican journalist and the publisher of Savana and Mediacoop, joins me to discuss the issues of the day, including the prospects for Mozambique’s economy in 2022, and the official reaction to the weekend’s road crash tragedy which has killed 28 people.
In part 2, Peter Bofin of Cabo Ligado talks us through his analysis of recruitment propaganda from Islamic State and also Al Shabaab in East Africa, and how their rivalry could be helping fuel the conflict in Cabo Delgado.
Thanks again for listening,
Tom Bowker, editor, Zitamar News
