Recent peace talks
Dhlakama started direct talks with President Filipe Nyusi, who succeeded Guebuza, to reach a new peace agreement. Without mediators, they have reached a number of consensuses. In February 2018 they agreed to modify the constitution to allow more decentralization. But until Dhlakama's death on 3 May 2018 due to health problems, parliament had not voted for the necessary changes.
