I think the last two pics might be in South Africa, but they were listed as Mozambique.
Probably taken en route to, or back from, Mozambique. Given the hills and the proximity of the railroad, I would expect that the last picture has been taken somewhere around Waterval Boven, which is midway between Jo'burg and the Mozambique border on the South African N4. The second to last picture shows two South African licence plates in a landscape that I would expect on the Highveld rather than in Mozambique. The marks on the road are very much different from the other Mozambique pictures, too.

On the two distance signs, I'm surprised by the coverplates over the E in the route numbers. Has Mozambique been changing its prefix for national roads from EN to N?

The e is for "estrada", in Portugal some signs also have EN x instead of N x, so Mozambique is probably dropping the "E"'s.

Honestly.
See the Pasadena Parkway pic in the non-Interstate thread and then say sorry.

Is this kind of thing really necessary in a thread about roads in Mozambique?

I might want to remind you this thread is about Mozambique, the African country, not Mexico nor the United States.
