Behn's account distorts facts, ignores history and is an apologia for a fractious group that has terrorized thousands of civilians in Mozambique. Neither Behn nor the leaders of Renamo can deny that Renamo was created by Rhodesian security forces during the struggle for Zimbabwe independence. Those in the Rhodesian security forces have given detailed accounts of their creation of Renamo to destabilize Mozambique so it could not assist the liberation forces for Zimbabwe. Further, they have documented how the group was flown to South Africa in 1979 (at the time of Zimbabwe independence)

The Senate, at long last ignoring the bad advice of Sen. Jesse Helms (R-N.C.), finally summoned its collective courage and good sense and did what it should have done 10 months ago by confirming Melissa Wells as the new American ambassador to Mozambique. She is a career Foreign Service officer with substantial experience in Africa, well qualified for the delicate task of pursuing the constructive policy that President Reagan has followed for that desperate and confused country.

Dear SOS: Last summer, my girlfriend and I spent our vacation on Florida's Amelia Island. We stopped by a lovely, quaint Spanish restaurant in Fernandina Beach called España . Its gambas Mozambique (shrimp Mozambique style) was extraordinary. I'd love the recipe so we could enjoy this fabulous dish more than just once a year. Keith Johnson Rancho Palos Verdes Dear Keith: If I didn't know how easy this dish was to make, I'd be planning a cross-country trip to Amelia Island too. Large shrimp are poached in a rich sauce flavored with garlic and spice, fresh lemon, coconut milk and a few dashes of hot sauce.

The ruling party in Mozambique dropped all references to a Marxist-Leninist ideology in its draft program Friday, backpedaling on its policies since independence from Portugal in 1975. President Joaquim Chissano said the party program, expected to be approved at the first National Congress in more than five years, puts solutions to the nation's crisis in a "real framework," though not necessarily "an ideal one." Mozambique has been undergoing a crippling civil war.

After complaints from election monitors, observers from the European Union and the Commonwealth have asked Mozambique for access to centers where votes from last week's balloting are being verified. The impoverished southern African country went to the polls Wednesday and Thursday, and a preliminary count was complete. But the data still have to be fed into computers and verified in the 11 provinces and the capital, Maputo, before a formal announcement, and monitors want to assess that process.
