Inner City Press Asks Mozambique's President If IMF Arrived, He Calls It A Detail
By Matthew Russell Lee
UNITED NATIONS, September 22 -- When Mozambique's President Filipe Jacinto Nyusi came to address journalists at the UN 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?
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.
