Andre Mayer Hanekom is one of four suspects facing charges related to allegedly aiding an extreme jihadist group in Mozambique.

A South African man has been detained in Mozambique for allegedly aiding an extreme jihadist group destabilising sections of northern Mozambique.

60-year-old Andre Mayer Hanekom is one of a group of four facing various charges including crimes against the state, murder and inciting civil disobedience.

Ndivhuwo Mabaya, spokesperson for International Relations and Cooperation Minister Lindiwe Sisulu, says the department has a warning for South Africans travelling in the region. He says they must be angels of economic development and not be involved in activities that seek to destabilise governments.

We asked the police to look into this matter to see if there are other people in South Africa who were helping Hanekom.

Ndibhuwo Mabaya, spokesperson for minister Sisulu

This is mainly because of our relationship with Mozambique. They are our brothers and we have very strong economic and political ties, if anything we want to be part of their development.

Ndibhuwo Mabaya, spokesperson for minister Sisulu

Mabaya says Hanekom was arrested twice in Mozambique and shot in the shoulder after he tried to resist arrest.

He says Minister Sisulu has ordered that the case be monitored to ensure a fair trial for the accused.

He is facing allegations. He is innocent until proven guilty...

Ndibhuwo Mabaya, spokesperson for minister Sisulu

We are continuing to assist him as a South African but he is facing charges in Mozambique.
