The United States (U.S.) government has launched a third Joint Combined Exchange Training (JCET) programme with Mozambique to enhance the military’s readiness to contain rising insecurity.

U.S. has been conducting trainings with Maputo since March 2021 as part of the efforts to combat an insurgency in the country’s north.

Mozambique’s Cabo Delgado province has been a subject of concerted regional and global efforts to tackle the terror merchants since 2017 when armed rebels attacked numerous villages and destroyed extensive civilian property and infrastructure, including schools and health centres.

An estimated 3,000 people have been killed and 820,000 displaced since the violence began. Apart from the US, the European Union (EU) is also training Mozambique forces in fighting the insurgency.

In November, the EU launched its military training mission (EUTM) in Mozambique along with other programmes to tackle an insurgency in Cabo Delgado.
