South African President Cyril Ramaphosa has apologized to President Muhamadu Buhari and the Nigerian People over the recent xenophobic attacks on other nationals from the African Continent, mostly Nigerians.
Mr. Ramaphosa dispatched a special envoy, Jeff Radebe to the Nigerian Capital, Abuja today, Monday September 16 2019, to render an unqualified apology to President Buhari and the people of Nigeria.
The South African envoy averred that compensation packages for the Nigerian victims of the xeno attacks is being considered and that discussions would be held when President Buhari makes his scheduled visit to South Africa in October this year.
Present in the meeting was Nigeria’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama; Nigeria’s High Commissioner to South Africa, Kabiru Bala and the acting South African High Commissioner in Nigeria, Bobby Moroe.
The apology comes on the back of a peace walk embarked on by South Africans yesterday in what they say is a show of remorse for their indifference towards their fellow Africans.
