South Africa is best placed to pressure terror-plagued Mozambique to accept military and humanitarian help amid bloody insurgent attacks in Cabo Delgado Province.
This according to Liesl Louw-Vaudran, a senior researcher at the Institute of Security Studies (ISS), who said she believed the violence would not stop unless Mozambique's neighbours intervene.
"There are talks around issues to protect our economic interests in Mozambique. South Africa should sit down with Mozambique to urgently address the matters. We should convince them to accept help. We are by far the strongest economy and we need to apply that pressure," Louw-Vaudran said.
