i remember you from our days

The writer Mia Couto wrote an open letter to the president of South Africa, Jacob Zuma. The man from Mozambique remembers the days that Zuma lived in exile in the country north of the border. He wrote his letter in the days of the outburst of xenophobia in South Africa. 
Couto remembers Zuma, when the exile walked the streets of Maputo.
And now Zuma remembers Couto.

Jacob replies to Mia.
