New inquiry into controversial Samora Machel death touted

EWN Africa correspondent, Jean Jacques Cornish, says the investigation into the death of former Mozambican President Samora Machel would be more credible if someone who was close to the South African government at the time comes forward with new information.

Mozambique Prime Minister Carlos Agostinho do Rosário called for another full investigation into the plane crash that killed Machel 30 years ago.

The first official inquiry found that the pilot had not responded to ground warnings, and subsequent inquires found nothing conclusive that could lay blame on South African regime.

It's a good thing to do, but what could they find at this time 28 years later. Unless they find someone with more credibility.
