Filipe Nyusi Career
Nyusi took office as Minister of Defence on 27 March 2008, succeeding Tobias Joaquim Dai. His appointment came almost exactly one year after the fire. The resulting explosions of munitions at the Malhazine armory in Maputo killed more than 100 people and destroyed 14,000 homes. A government-appointed investigative commission concluded that negligence played a role in the disaster, and Dai “was blamed by many for failing to act on time to prevent the loss of life”.
In September 2012, Nyusi was elected to the Central Committee of FRELIMO, the ruling party, at its 10th congress. In the first round of voting, he received 46% of the vote—well ahead of the second-place candidate, Luisa Diogo, but short of the majority needed to win outright.
