What is Mozambique known for?

to Nigeria, where the Nigerian government provided houses for him and his entourage in Calabar. There is also pop music in Zimbabwe that incorporates their indigenous instruments. Although the mbira is traditionally played as ceremonial music to call spirits, there are many who play it in world-fusion music and get successful radio play and album sales in Zimbabwe and other countries in Africa. For example, mbira player Chris Berry with his band Panjea (Panjea (band)) have reached platinum record sales in Zimbabwe and Mozambique, playing a style of music based on traditional mbira rhythms and melodies, but incorporating various other instruments and styles (like hip-hop and dancehall). The fleet had two divisions. The first division was composed of nine ''naus'' (carracks) and two round caravels, and was headed to Calicut (today more often known as Kozhikode) in India with the goal of establishing trade relations and a factory (trading post). The second division, consisting of one ''nau'' and one round caravel, set sail for the port of Sofala in what is today Mozambique.

'''''Impatiens walleriana''''' Hook.f. (Joseph Dalton Hooker) (syn. (Synonymy) ''Impatiens sultanii'' Hook.f.) also known as '''Busy Lizzy''', '''Balsam''' or simply '''''Impatiens''''', is native to eastern Africa from Kenya to Mozambique. It is a herbaceous perennial plant growing to 15–60 cm tall, with broad lanceolate leaves (leaf) 3–12 cm long and 2–5 cm broad. Leaves are mostly alternate (Phyllotaxis), although they may be opposite (Phyllotaxis) near the top of the plant. The flowers are profusely borne, 2–5 cm diameter, with five petals and a 1 cm spur. The seedpod explodes when ripe in the same manner as other ''Impatiens'' species, an evolutionary adaptation for seed dispersal (Biological dispersal). This led to the disintegration of the Ndwandwe nation as Zwide's generals and sons led sections of the Ndwandwe northwards. One such group, under Soshangane, formed the Gaza Empire in present-day central Mozambique while another, under Zwangendaba, established rule as the waNgoni in present day Malawi. Others established themselves as chiefs of note in Swaziland and Zambia to create a Ndwandwe legacy of enduring power that is scattered across Southern Africa. nativename કચ્છી کچھی ''Kachhi'' states Pakistan, India, Trinidad And Tobago, UK (United Kingdom), USA (United States), Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa, Portugal, UAE, Kenya, Tanzania ( Some Parts Of Guyana) and others. speakers 1,866,000 The final Artillerie Inrichtingen design is known as the ''Portuguese'' model AR-10. This final version incorporated all that had been learned to date about the AR-10, including infantry service rifle and field test reports. In addition to a heavier barrel with chrome-lined chamber, optional bipod, and the removable plastic metal handguards of the Transitional model, the Portuguese variant had wider bolt lugs, a stronger extractor, a new simplified three-position gas regulator, and a cocking handle featuring a forward bolt assist. Pikula, Sam (Major), ''The ArmaLite AR-10'', pp. 76-78 It is believed that approximately 4-5,000 Portuguese variants were produced; nearly all of them were sold to the Portuguese National Defense Ministry by the Brussels -based arms dealer SIDEM International in 1960. The AR-10 was officially adopted by Portuguese Hunter paratroop (''Caçadores páraquedista'') battalions, and the rifle saw considerable combat service in Portugal's counter-insurgency campaigns (Portuguese Colonial Wars) in Angola and Mozambique. Afonso, Aniceto and Gomes, Carlos de Matos, ''Guerra Colonial'' (2000), ISBN 972-46-1192-2, pp. 183-184 In U.S. Army tests at Aberdeen Proving Ground in November 1960, and later in Portuguese service, the AR-10 gained a reputation for accuracy United States Army Ordnance Department, Aberdeen Proving Ground, ''A Test of Rifle, Caliber 7.62mm, AR-10, Report No. DPS-101'' (November 1960): At Aberdeen, the AR-10 test rifles used in the accuracy test averaged 10-shot groups of 2.0 inches at 100 yards. (some rifles would group into 25 mm (1 inch) at 100 meters with service ammunition). Portuguese paratroopers found the AR-10 to be not only accurate but reliable in combat, despite rugged service conditions in African jungle and savannah. Pikula, Sam (Major), ''The ArmaLite AR-10'', p. 70-71,79-80 A few Portuguese and Sudanese model AR-10s found their way by various means to nearby African countries; in Chad, the AR-10 was much appreciated by members of the French Foreign Legion. As one police instructor in the Congo (Democratic Republic of the Congo) stated, "It was a good combat weapon that never failed me; a bit too long (but not as bad as the FAL or M-14) for house-to-house work or really heavy brush, but great for 400-800 meters, in the flats - and really nice on the body, after wandering around 12-14 hours looking for bad guys."

Slavery in Somalia The Bantu (also called ''Wagosha'') are an ethnic minority group in Somalia. Bantu - People They are the descendants of people from various Bantu (Bantu peoples) ethnic groups originating in what are modern-day Tanzania, Malawi and Mozambique who were sold into slavery as part of the recent Arab slave trade. The number of Bantu inhabitants in Somalia before the civil war (Somali Civil War) is thought to have been about 80,000 (1970 estimate), with most concentrated between the Juba (Jubba River) and Shabelle (Shebelle River) rivers in the south. Encyclopædia Britannica, ''Encyclopædia Britannica, v.20'', (Encyclopædia Britannica, inc.: 1970), p.897 However, recent estimates place the figure as high as 900,000 persons. Tanzania accepts Somali Bantus Contrary to the Somali (Somali people)s, who are for the most part nomadic herders, the Bantu are mainly sedentary farmers. Bantus are also ethnically, physically, and culturally distinct from Somalis, and have remained marginalized ever since their arrival in Somalia. L. Randol Barker et al., ''Principles of Ambulatory Medicine'', 7 edition, (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins: 2006), p.633 During the recent civil war (Somali Civil War) in Somalia, many Bantu were evicted from their farms by various armed factions of Somali clans.

'''Mozambique''' ( ), is a country in Southeast Africa bordered by the Indian Ocean to the east, Tanzania to the north, Malawi and Zambia to the northwest, Zimbabwe to the west, and Swaziland and South Africa to the southwest. It is separated from Madagascar by the Mozambique Channel to the east. The capital and largest city is Maputo (previously called Lourenço Marques (Maputo) before independence).

Between the 1st and 5th centuries AD, Bantu (Bantu languages)-speaking peoples migrated from farther north and west. Swahili, and later also Arab, commercial ports existed along the coasts until the arrival of Europeans. The area was explored by Vasco da Gama in 1498 and colonized by Portugal from 1505. After over four centuries of Portuguese rule, Mozambique gained independence (Mozambican War of Independence) in 1975, becoming the People's Republic of Mozambique shortly thereafter. After only two years of independence, the country descended into an intense and protracted civil war (Mozambican Civil War) lasting from 1977 to 1992. In 1994, Mozambique held its first multiparty elections and has remained a relatively stable presidential republic since.

Mozambique is endowed with rich and extensive natural resources. The country's economy is based largely on agriculture, but industry, mainly food and beverages, chemical manufacturing, aluminium and petroleum production, is growing. The country's tourism sector is also growing. South Africa is Mozambique's main trading partner and source of foreign direct investment. Portugal, Brazil, Spain and Belgium are also among the country's most important economic partners. Since 2001, Mozambique's annual average GDP growth has been among the world's highest. However, the country ranks among the lowest in GDP per capita (List of countries by GDP (PPP) per capita), human development (List of countries by Human Development Index), measures of inequality (List of countries by inequality-adjusted HDI), and average life expectancy.

The only official language of Mozambique is Portuguese, which is spoken mostly as a second language by about half of the population. Common native languages include Swahili (Swahili language), Makhuwa (Makhuwa language) and Sena (Sena language). The country's population of around 24 million is composed overwhelmingly of Bantu people (Bantu peoples). The largest religion in Mozambique is Christianity, with significant minorities following Islam and African traditional religions. Mozambique is a member of the African Union, the Commonwealth of Nations, the Community of Portuguese Language Countries, the Latin Union, the Non-Aligned Movement and the Southern African Development Community, and an observer at La Francophonie (Organisation internationale de la Francophonie).
