Mozambique's ruling Frelimo party is expected to win Tuesday's general election but the challenge from the main opposition party, Renamo, has proven stronger than expected.
The Frelimo party is set to remain in power after winning 73% of the vote. Opposition parties are questioning the elections that took place on October 15, citing bullying tactics and corruption.
Growing violence in Mozambique on the eve of general elections has the country and the international community deeply worried. The reasons for the violence are manifold and not easy to tackle.
The crucial vote is the first since the government and rebels signed a peace deal to end decades of conflict.
Mozambique's opposition RENAMO party recently signed a peace deal with the government. But the party's armed wing refused to lay down their weapons. Its leader Nhongo tells DW the peace deal is invalid.
