Maputo - Mozambique's Renamo opposition leader Afonso Dhlakama said on Friday he intended to run as a candidate in an October 15 presidential election, but demanded safety guarantees from the government to be able to leave his bush hideout.

“I am interested in coming out of the bush to start my party work for the presidential election,” Dhlakama, who has been in hiding for more than a year to escape what he says is government persecution, told reporters in a conference call from the Gorongosa district in central Sofala province. - Reuters
