such a mes­sage came while he was on his way home and they had to change course to avoid be­ing am­bushed. This was a well wo­ven, al­beit. I can al­ready sense Ntate Se­jana­mane’s ego­tism when he states that the let­ter by Mozam­bi­can Pres­i­dent Filipe Nyusi is one step to­wards the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the rec­om­men­da­tions.

Surely, Ntate Se­jana­mane is not try­ing to put a crown of glory on the head of Pres­i­dent Nyusi, whose army is re­ported to have torched homes and barns of or­di­nary Mozam­bi­cans in Jan­uary 2016 in his hunt for op­po­si­tion leader Afonso Dh­lakama, a move that has seen an in­flux of thou­sands of Mozam­bi­can refugees into neigh­bour­ing Malawi.

You claim that SADC has di­rected the govern­ment to fa­cil­i­tate the re­turn of all ex­iles and pro­vide se­cu­rity for the ex­iled po­lit­i­cal lead­ers. Are you talk­ing about your leader who, sub­se­quent to agree­ing to re­turn home af­ter a meet­ing with Ntate Mo­sisili, grotesquely claimed that the doc­u­ment was only min­utes of what they talked about and not a com­mit­ment to re­turn home?

Are you talk­ing about Ntate Mot­soa­hae who, af­ter a lot of la­men­ta­tion, was of­fered a govern­ment house and po­lice pro­tec­tion which he had asked for, but now claims he
