More about:

Twenty years after laying down weapons, Mozambican civil war commander Afonso Dhlakama has told AFP he is willing to provoke a fresh bloodbath and divide the country if the government does not meet his demands.

In an exclusive interview from his base deep in the Mozambican bush, where he has gathered several hundred armed supporters, the former anti-communist guerilla vowed a return to violence if the government does not share the country's wealth and reform the electoral system.
