Mozambique's war of independence explodes to end 400-year-old Portuguese colonialism

years ago

25 September 1964,

The Mozambican war of independence begins to end the 400-year-old Portuguese colonialism. The FRELIMO movement joined the liberating environments that lived in Africa and began an armed struggle against the Portuguese. The 1974 Carnation Revolution meant the independence of the Portuguese colonies. Independence brought with it a civil war between the leftist FRELIMO and the government of South African apartheid.
