The President of South Africa, Cyril Ramaphosa, has apologised to Nigeria over the xenophobic attacks in his country.
The apology was delivered to President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja on Monday by Ramaphosa’s special envoy, Mr Jeff Radebe.
A meeting between Buhari and Radebe has just ended at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Ramaphosa had sent three envoys to seven African countries, including Nigeria, to deliver messages of pan-African unity after he was booed in Zimbabwe on Saturday at Robert Mugabe’s funeral in Harare.
Apart from Nigeria, the envoys were billed to visit Niger, Ghana, Senegal, Tanzania and the Democratic Republic of Congo and Zambia.
