ICP Asked Mozambique's Prez If IMF Arrived, Now IMF Will Dec 1-12

By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS, November 28 -- When Mozambique's President Filipe Jacinto Nyusi came to address journalists at the UN back on September 21, he spoke only in Portuguese and said he would take no questions at all, in any language. Inner City Press shouted out, did the IMF mission get to Mozambique today?

    Filipe Jacinto Nyusi came back to the microphone and he did not say “Yes.” Beyond the Vine video here. Instead he called the IMF arriving, or not arriving, when they said they would to look into undisclosed loans a mere detail. But is it?

Now on November 28, the IMF has put out this statement:

"A mission led by Mr. Michel Lazare, IMF Mission Chief for Mozambique, will visit Maputo from December 1 to December 12, 2016 to initiate discussions with the Mozambican authorities on a new program. These discussions will continue in the first part of 2017.
In September 2016 the authorities requested the Fund to resume discussions on financial support as soon as possible. As indicated at the time (See PR N0 16/436 of September 29, 2016), a solid track record of implementation of sound macroeconomic policies and an effective initiation of the audit process in the near term would help to create the conditions for a possible resumption of program discussions with the IMF. Since then, these conditions have been met, opening the way to the upcoming mission."

  While in the US,  Filipe Jacinto Nyusi spoke to Mozambicans in Houston, Texas -- usually a stop over for foreign leaders for health reasons - and met the IMF in DC.

  Back on September 15, Inner City Press submitted to the IMF questions on Zimbabwe and South Sudan.
