The British government under Margaret Thatcher did not view the civil war in Mozambique as a part of the Cold War in the extent that could have been thought and when FRELIMO closed the border to Rhodesia it was in fit well with British interests against the rebel colony while the Rhodesian government supported RENAMO. RENAMO has an external representation in the form of its offices abroad which is real enough, but is both factious and divided. Luckily for RENAMO, this all appears to have had little effect on its military operations inside Mozambique, as witness the lack of impression left by a whole series of murders and defections over the years

  Mozambique's elections on Tuesday are almost certain to be won by the ruling party, Frelimo, and President Filipe Nyusi - but it is unclear if the results will establish badly-needed stability and.   Although Frelimo maintained its hold on executive power (in subsequent presidential elections in , , and ), Renamo gained a sizable minority of seats in the Assembly of the Republic, Mozambique’s legislative body, and a few smaller political parties are involved in .

In , Mozambique negotiated the Nkomati Accord with P. W. Botha and the South African government, in which Mozambique was to expel the African National Congress in exchange for South Africa stopping support of Renamo. At first both sides complied but it soon became evident that infringements were taking place on both sides and the war continued.   With a handshake and a hug, Mozambique's leaders hoped on Tuesday to close the book on a decades-long conflict. But an election in October and new causes of violence mean lasting peace is far from.
