Rwandan President Paul Kagame is expected in Pemba, the capital of Cabo Delgado province, on Friday, according to newspapers in Rwanda and Mozambique.
It was a surprise visit that had not been announced before, according to a BBC correspondent in Mozambique.
According to the Rwandan state news agency RBA, President Kagame is on a two-day visit where he “must meet with the Rwandan army and police sent to Cabo Delgado to restore peace”.
Paul Kagame is reportedly scheduled to attend Army Day tomorrow in Pemba, the day of the Revolution in Mozambique to be celebrated on September 25. And he will hold talks with his counterpart Philippe Nyusi of Mozambique.
The Rwandan army joined forces with Mozambique to defeat and oust Islamist insurgents in the occupied territories of Cabo Delgado.
In the province, thousands of displaced people have already returned because security has been restored by the Mozambican-backed Rwandan army.
According to Rwandan refugees
President Kagame arrives in Mozambique this morning while the Rwandan Refugee Association in Mozambique is holding a press conference.
In the interview, they said they heard about the visit of the president of their country to their refuge, and wanted him to hear that.
The group has condemned the killings of refugees such as Théogène Turatsinze, Louis Baziga, Révocat Karemangingo, and the disappearance of Cassien Ntamuhanga in the country.
One of the refugees said, “We have little security for Rwandan refugees from our homeland.
“It simply came to our notice then.
“We urge advocacy, we demand justice, we also demand security so that we do not continue to be killed like frogs.”
Cleophas Habiyaremye, head of the refugee association, said they were concerned that there was no justice.
“Unfortunately for all, justice has not been done for them. That is why our organization believes that this unjustified killings will make the killers happy and continue to kill them because no one is to blame.”
“We urge an independent commission to investigate and prosecute all those responsible for the killings.”
The Rwandan government has not commented on the recent killings of Karemangingo who was shot dead in Maputo, or the disappearance of Cassien Ntamuhanga, while Mozambique has said it is investigating.
