Mozambique rebel leader arrives in Maputo to cement peace deal

Rebel leader Afonso Dhlakama in Gorongosa's mountains, Mozambique on November 8, 2012Mozambican rebel leader Afonso Dhlakama came out of hiding Thursday, returning to Maputo in a symbolic end to a two-year conflict that has rekindled memories of a brutal civil war and spooked investors. An AFP reporter witnessed the Renamo leader touch down in the capital Maputo, flanked by foreign diplomats — there as a guarantee of his safety — ahead of a meeting to cement a peace deal with President Armando Guebuza Friday. “I want you all to vote Afonso Dhlakama, number one and number 2 Renamo!” he said in reference to the presidential and parliamentary vote. Dhlakama and his supporters staged a victory lap around the airport before making his way to the Renamo headquarters in Maputo escorted by a phalanx of armed guards.
