Mozambique: Demonstration of former secret agents outside the presidential palace.

The first manifestation of former spies in the world.

More than 300 former Mozambican secret agents demonstrated outside the presidential palace in Maputo Thursday to demand payment of their pensions , found an AFP journalist.
"Now that the end of his term approach, we do not want the president to finish his term without solving our problem", said their spokesman Adolf Beira, referring to President Armando Emilio Guebuza*, who must leave power the next year.
The former spy, who claim to be more than 2.000, claim to have been fired and replaced by youngers. They claim more than three years of pension arrears.

But really how much wins the agent 007 in Mozambique?

Secret agents have ended their protest, closely monitored by heavily armed soldiers, after their representatives had met with associates of President Guebuza.
"If they do not solve it now, then there will always protests. We will address all state institutions", warned Mr. Beira.
They had already shown in February, saying at the time that the wave of kidnappings in the capital, Maputo, could not be stopped without their help.
Mozambique for two years the scene of many abductions hitting wealthy businessmen-especially Muslims-and more recently children and expatriates.
* Armando Emilio Guebuza, born January 20, 1943, member of the Liberation Front of Mozambique (FRELIMO) since 1963, he is President of the Republic of Mozambique since 2 February 2005. He is poet and wealthy businessman. Nicknamed Mr Gue-business, he replaced Dr. Joachim Alberto Chissano (1986-2005), who oversaw a move away from Marxism and the introduction of a multi-party constitution, after the death of independent Mozambique's first president Samora Machel on October 19, 1986.
