On 17 November 2018 Face2Face Africa reported: As president, Joaquim Chissano would make moves that would see Mozambique become a better country. For starters, he would sign a historic peace agreement with Mozambican National Resistance (RENAMO) in 1992, ending the Mozambican Civil War that had ravaged the country since 1977.
He would also introduce the Transcendental Meditation technique in the government and later the military. The technique has been said to have contributed to reduced crimes. It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring fulfilment to the field of government.
''First I started the practice of Transcendental Meditation myself, then introduced the practice to my close family, then to my cabinet of ministers, then to my government officers, and then to the military. The result has been political peace and balance in Nature in my country . . .'' [President Chissano] was quoted as saying.
His efforts as president saw him win the inaugural Mo Ibrahim Prize for Achievement in African Leadership in 2007.
