Abstract:On 3 March 2015, the jurist Gilles Cistac was gunned down in Maputo, Mozambique. Over 1000 people flocked to the vigil that night, and demonstrations took place in Maputo and Beira on 7 March. The news has circulated widely in the country and internationally. Cistac's murder has reawakened concerns about intolerance of freedom of speech and criminal impunity from the cases of Carlos Cardoso, Siba-Siba Macuácua and Dinis Silica, but has also brought to the fore important tensions in the political life of the country. This article discusses the murder, its context and impacts. Bibliogr., ref., sum. [ASC Leiden abstract]
