Mozambique votes amid hopes of capitalising on energy reserves (3/3)
Issued on: Modified:
Mozambicans are voting today in the country’s fifth presidential election after the most violent campaign period on record. The two main parties, previously enemies in a protracted civil war, recently signed another peace deal as multinational energy firms strike multibillion-dollar deals for the country’s resources.
The discovery of enormous gas reserves will make Mozambique the continent’s biggest producer, bringing in $50 billion in investment from multinational energy companies.
FRANCE 24 spent a day with a local to hear about the issues affecting the country and the campaign.
