The other side of the coin in Mozambique is that the rich, a very small number, are becoming richer. They accumulate wealth and power, transforming any critique or observation, and protests, in a crime against the nation and the people. A profound change in the political and economic system -more democracy - will guarantee peace. The land law has to be changed. Profound changes have to be introduced in the ethical behaviour of the leaders and state personnel. International organizations as the World Bank - and donors in general - did not want to see that poverty alleviation in Mozambique was and is a void discourse. World Bank colleagues should look at poverty analisys of the 1980s in Mozambique. They will see clkearly that more than a reduction we have a growth of poverty and concentration of wealth in a very narrow fringe of society.
