            Abstract

            The first part of this article ( ROAPE57) outlined the history and the guiding military concepts of Renamo (Resistencia Nacional Mocambicana, MNR) and related the war of destabilisation against Mozambique. This part analyses destabilisation as a specific kind of war with its roots in the counter‐insurgency concept of ‘pseudo units’ which the British developed in Kenya. This article will discuss the kind of mechanisms at work in the recruitment process at the local level and the risk of a second wave of destablisation.
