Welcome to Zitamar’s daily Mozambique briefing for 22 December 2020

Dear subscribers, Zitamar News is now on its annual end-of-year break. We will continue to publish major breaking news on our Telegram channel, and may send an occasional newsletter if the news-flow justifies it.

In this newsletter we also highlight our sister organisation Plural Media’s translation of the ‘Diz-Se… Diz-Se’ political rumour column that appears each week in Savana. We hope you find it useful.

Thanks as ever for your continued support, have a good break, and we look forward to resuming normal service starting on 4 January 2021.
