Ten alleged killers of motorcycle taxi drivers are under arrest in the coal and energy-rich western Mozambican city of Tete.
The suspects, who were presented to the press, by the Mozambican police are accused of robberies and the murder of motorbike taxi operators in neighbourhoods of Tete.
The police spokesperson in Tete, Feliciano da Câmara, said that some of them killed a member of the country’s main opposition party, the ex-rebel Renamo movement, last week and seized his motorbike.
They also took large sums of money from their victims, the police spokesperson alleged.
Some of those detained deny any connection with the crimes.
