Extending South Africa's Tentacles of Empire: Cahora Bassa Dam, 1965-2014

In 1970 when Portugal began constructing a dam at Cahora Bassa, colonial officials claimed that the massive hydro-electric project would play a critical role in the development of the Mozambican countryside. The growing success of the Mozambican Liberation Movement (FRELIMO) turned the dam into a strategic military and energy security project to sustain the apartheid regime.
