After a meeting held in Mozambique, the leaders decided to resuscitate and capacitate its Force Intervention Brigade (FIB) to facilitate deployment in Mozambique.

“First, we had the Troika itself, which sat and adopted the recommendations of the Ministers of Defence and Security which, in the main, included the need to have SADC take responsibility in dealing with the threat in Cabo Delgado,” Zimbabwe President Emmerson Mnangagwa said after the Maputo meeting.

“In the sense that SADC, through its Force Intervention Brigade, our SADC force should be resuscitated and capacitated immediately so that it can intervene. “Yes, what is happening now is that the defence and security chiefs have the responsibility of implementing the decisions of the Double Troika.”
SADC Leaders will Deploy Troops to Counter Terrorists in Mozambique 
The United Nations Force Intervention Brigade (FIB) is a military formation authorised by the United Nations Security Council in 2013. It is composed entirely of troops from South Africa, Tanzania and Malawi.

A communique issued after the meeting condemned the attacks. “Double Troika Summit received a report from the Organ Troika on the security situation in Mozambique, and noted with concern the acts of terrorism perpetrated against innocent civilians, women and children in some of the districts of Cabo Delgado Province of the Republic of Mozambique.”

“…condemned the terrorist attacks in strongest terms; and affirmed that such heinous attacks cannot be allowed to continue without a proportionate regional response,” read part of the statement released after the key meetings.”

Officially opening the Organ Troika Summit, Botswana President Masisi said there was a need to deal decisively with the insurgents to bring SADC back on its development path.

“We all agree that the deteriorating security situation in the northern province of Cabo Delgado in Mozambique is indeed a serious threat to peace and security not only our sister country but also to the whole region and humanity at large.

“In particular, the recent attacks in the town of Palma have recently demonstrated the magnitude of the problem at our doorsteps,” said President Masisi.

Masisi said could not be expected to sustain the operations in the long term alone. “No member state can deal with the scourge of terrorism alone. Even the most powerful of nations on the planet have not been able to effectively address terrorism on their own.”
