Armando Guebuza testifies in Mozambique's 'hidden debts' trial

Welcome to the Zitamar Podcast — back after a hiatus. We have some good episodes coming up in the pipeline, but couldn’t resist a quick episode today to talk about the showdown currently going on at the hidden debts trial.

Former President Armando Guebuza is wrapping up his two-day testimony today, having yesterday — as expected — tried as far as possible to pin the blame for the $2bn scandal on his successor, Filipe Nyusi, who at the time was the country’s defence minister.

I called up Fernando Lima, who was in court yesterday, to discuss the implications of these momentous two days, for the future of Mozambican politics.
