Query: History of computing in Mozambique

I am working on a research project on the history of computing in Mozambique. One important piece of information I am searching for is related to the first known use of a digital computer (computer system) in Mozambique. It has been reported that the “first computer in Mozambique (of unknown kind) was installed in 1964-65 in a tobacco company.” However, for research purposes it would be helpful to have access to scholarly source(s), journal articles, magazines, books, digital repositories, etc. with a written story/article on this specific subject/country before independence: 1975.
