Mozambique's success at risk

Recent riots over food price rise expose fragility of African nation's recovery from civil war.

    Mozambique's reputation as an African success story was badly tarnished at the beginning of September when riots left more than a dozen people dead and several hundreds injured.

    They were triggered by the government raising the price of bread, water and electricity.

    The country may have come far in recovering from the terrible civil war which ended in 1992, but the recovery is fragile. Present-day leaders are in danger of losing touch with the majority.
