Just got info via the Tete Facebook page (closed group) that last night 17 April, a logging truck was attacked and burned and two other vehicles shot up, as well as a deep trench dug across the main road (EN 102) 23km south of Catandica.






Update. There are a few trucks burnt out as well as 2 cars approx 25km south of Catandica. There is a trench dug across the road south of that. All travel Chimoio to and from Catandica is not advisable and is currently not possible at this time. The Taylors will try and update us later today.

Road is currently impassable. There have been a number of attacks on the same stretch of road during past weeks. If you have to travel to Tete from the south, either go via Mutare in Zimbabwe or in Moz Chimoio - Inchope - Vila Gorongosa - Macossa - EN 102 - Changara - Tete.

The Mozambique Army has re-opened the EN102 (also known as EN7), but there have been exchanges of gunfire south of Catandica today. MozReal has reported that two Renamo bandits were shot while attempting to sabotage a bridge on the EN7 near Honde: mozreal.com/2016/04/18/homens-da-renamo-...tar-ponte-em-manica/

My guess is that this is Renamo's "last Hurrah" and that these attacks will diminish and end within a few weeks.

Hope I am right...
