Botswana joins Rwanda in deploying troops in Mozambique. Mokgweetsi Masisi saw off the troops at the Sir Seretse Khama International Airport north of Gaborone on Monday morning as Commander-in-Chief of the Botswana Armed Forces and Current Chairperson of the SADC Organ on Politics, Defence & Security.

The president of Botswana, Mokgweetsi Masisi, on Monday deployed troops to Mozambique as part of the Southern Africa Development Community (SADC) Standby Force. He said:

Complex as the security situation in the SADC region may be, as in the past, Botswana’s foreign policy goals have been and remain very clear. Botswana’s security cannot be attained without that of her neighbours.

A total of 296 BDF soldiers will be deployed in Mozambique, and 70 of them departed yesterday. Mozambique has for years been grappling with Islamic insurgents who recently killed hundreds of people in Palma in the Northern Cabo Delgado Province.

Botswana is sending troops following Rwanda’s deployment of a 1 000-person contingent of the Rwanda Defence Force (RDF) and the Rwanda National Police (RNP) to help Mozambique fight off the terrorists.
