30 per cent hike on bread prices trigger riots in Maputo

Tourists in Mozambique are stranded because of riots over steep hike in food prices in the capital Maputo.

Desperate and hungry people in Maputo use violence during their hunt for food.

Six people, including two children, were reportedly killed in clashes between the police and rioters across Maputo. Police said the violence, which was sparked after bread prices rocketed by 30 per cent, were the worst in the country since 2008.

Though there have been no reports of South Africans being injured, the government has closed its embassy offices in the country.

Department of International Relations spokesman Saul Molobi said last night that the situation in Mozambique was being closely monitored:

“All South Africans are safe and we have not received any reports of injuries of fatalities.”

SA Airways spokesman Fani Zulu said last night that more than 400 SAA passengers (about 200 waiting for flights in South Africa and 200 waiting in Mozambique) had been stranded because all four flights to and from Mozambique had been cancelled. He said this was due to safety concerns and because airports were not functioning.

“There was no air traffic control . it was completely unsafe for us to operate,” said Zulu.

My comment:

Last year 165.000 people on Earth were killed because they believed in Jesus.

30 per cent hike in prices of food in Maputo is bad.  But in India prices of some food items have within one year doubled….

I have been of the opinion that the Globe has already entered into the Great Tribulation. But TV-stations like CNN and BCC will not tell you the truth about how bad the situation is for more than a billions people on Earth.

With the final anti-Messiah about to enter the Old city of Jerusalem, we know that the reign of the lawless one is about to start.

Be ready for a rocky ride ahead.

Revelation 6:15-16.

Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and every slave and every free man hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains. They called to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb!
