The Constitution (Article 78) guarantees freedom of religion. State and church are separated by law. Around 69% of the population are assigned to Christian churches and a good 19% to Islam. Almost 10% cannot be assigned to any religion.

Over 30% of the population belong to the Catholic Church (three archdioceses [Beira, Maputo, Nampula] with nine suffragan dioceses). In addition to the Protestant denominations, there are numerous independent churches (mainly Zionist Christians [10.6% of the population]) with over 2,500 parishes. The two Anglican dioceses (Maputo, Lichinga) belong to the Anglican Church of the Province of South Africa (population share of Anglicans in Mozambique: 1.3%). The Bantu peoples of the Makua, Makonde and Yao are mostly Sunni Muslims from the Shafiite school of law. The Jewish community (synagogue in Maputo; today less than 100 members) was founded around 1900 by South African Jews who had to leave the country during the Boer War on charges of “pro-British activities”.


The constitution that came into force on November 30, 1990 (revised several times) characterizes Mozambique as a presidential republic with a multi-party system. The constitution guarantees separation of powers as well as basic civil and human rights. The head of state and commander-in-chief of the armed forces is the president, who has extensive executive powers (directly elected for 5 years, one-time direct re-election possible). He determines the guidelines of politics, heads the government, appoints the prime minister and the other members of the cabinet and can declare a state of emergency. In 2014 F. Nyusi elected to this office. The legislative body is the Assembly of the Republic (Assembleia da República), a unicameral parliament, whose 250 members are elected for a legislative period of 5 years by majority vote (voting right from the age of 18).

The domestic political situation is characterized by the often bloody conflict between the FRELIMO party, which has been in government since independence in 1975, and the opposition RENAMO party. In terms of foreign policy, South Africa is Mozambique’s most important partner. The country also maintains close ties to the former colonial power Portugal. The main foreign investors come from China, Brazil and India. Mozambique is a member of the African Union (AU) and the South African Development Community (SADC). Since 1995 Mozambique is the only non-English speaking country to be a member of the Commonwealth.


Since the end of the leadership monopoly of the Frente de Libertação de Moçambique (FRELIMO, German Liberation Front of Mozambique, founded in 1962), a wide range of parties has emerged. Next to FRELIMO, the most important role is played by RENAMO (abbreviation for Resistência Nacional Moçambicana, German National Resistance of Mozambique; founded in 1976 as a guerrilla movement, registered as a political party since 1994). In 2009, as a reaction to undemocratic structures in RENAMO, the Movimento Democrático de Moçambique (MDM, German Democratic Movement of Mozambique) was founded. The parties must not use force; they are prohibited from using religious, ethnic or regional designations in their names.


Freedom of union and the right to strike have been constitutionally guaranteed since 1990. The largest umbrella organization closely related to FRELIMO is the Organização dos Trabalhadores de Moçambique (OTM, founded in 1983) with 15 individual unions. Check themakeupexplorer to see Trade Unions in Eastern Africa.


The total strength of the conscription army (service period 2 years) is 11,000 men. The army (7,000 soldiers) is divided into seven infantry, three special forces and two engineer battalions as well as a logistics battalion. The air force comprises 1,000 and the navy 200 men.


Mozambique is divided into 10 provinces and the capital district Maputo. The highest state representative of a province is the governor.


The legal system is based on Portuguese law from the colonial era, which has been partially modified and supplemented by new laws, as well as customary law. At the top of the judicial system is the Supreme Court in Maputo, which is subordinated to various lower-level courts, including ordinary courts, labor courts and courts for the law of the sea. There is also an administrative court. A constitutional court, which is provided for in the constitution, has not yet been set up; for the time being, the Supreme Court exercises the relevant powers.
