The President of the Republic, Filipe Jacinto Nyusi, in the use of the powers conferred on him by subparagraph a) of paragraph 2 of article 160 of the Constitution of the Mozambican Republic, combined with subparagraph d) of article 34 of the Law number 18/2019 of 24 September, has relieved Cristóvão Artur Chume of the position of Commander of the Army Branch
In a separate Presidential Order, the Mozambican Head of State appointed Cristóvão Artur Chume to the post of Minister of National Defence.
President Nyusi also appointed Arsénia Felicidade Félix Massingue as Minister of the Interior and Constantino Alberto Bacela as Minister in the President’s Office.
Arsenia Massingue is the first Mozambican woman to occupy the top job in the security forces. She is the new minister of interior. In her previous job, she was the national director of Migration. I hope she continues to be efficient, human oriented and flexible in her new role pic.twitter.com/FZwWpNYk6X
