The centrality of the Renamo organisation itself in his history (as opposed to a focus on southern Africa’s regional dynamics) allows Cabrita to recognise the international assistance that Renamo received, but to sideline its significance. Cabrita also constructs a plausible military history of the conflict’s campaigns that denies cross-border assistance from Malawi and the Comoros Islands, and emphasises domestic support for the movement. A major component of Cabrita’s case for Renamo’s political legitimacy is the attention he gives to the history of Mozambique’s liberation period.
