Mozambique, a former Portuguese colony from the latter half of the 19th century, gained independence in 1975 through movements led by the Liberation Front of Mozambique ( FRELIMO ) that mobilized in the 1960s. After independence, a civil war between FRELIMO , then in power, and the Mozambican National Resistance ( RENAMO ), an anti-government organization, continued. The war ended in 1992 with peace accords. The United Nations Operation in Mozambique ( ONUMOZ ) was established in 1992 to implement the ceasefire and disarmament, and to observe the elections as well as to provide humanitarian assistance.
