Constitutional Council validates Nacala result

Mozambique's Constitutional Council on 31 March validated the result of the second round of the mayoral election in the northern port of Nacala, won by the candidate of the ruling Frelimo Party - but also called for those responsible for fraud in several polling stations to be prosecuted.

The second round election was held on 11 February and saw the Frelimo candidate, Chale Ossufo gain 24,131 votes (54.7 percent) against the Renamo candidate Manuel dos Santos who received 20,012 votes (45.3 percent).

However, Renamo national spokesperson Fernando Mazanga has vowed to reject these results, and has threatened not to hand the municipality over to the elected mayor.

Mazanga branded the result fraudulent and said Renamo had no intention of vacating the Nacala municipal offices. He claimed that the central government was sending an armed force to Nacala, including "300 agents of SISE" (the state intelligence service).
