Xenophobic Attacks: Buhari Meets with South African Envoy

President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday met with a special envoy from South Africa at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

The envoy led by Jeff Radebe, is the second of such to visit Nigeria within the last 24 hours.

President of South Africa, Cyril Ramaphosa, had sent special envoys to Nigeria and six other countries over recent xenophobic attacks in the former apartheid nation.

Apart from Nigeria, the representatives were instructed to visit Niger, Ghana, Senegal, Tanzania, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Zambia.

Other South Africans assigned to visit those countries are Ambassador Kingsley Mmabolo and Dr Khulu Mbatha.

The South African leader asked the envoys to deliver messages of solidarity to the Heads of State and Governments of those nations following the attacks on their citizens in his country.

President Ramaphosa was on Saturday during the funeral of the former Zimbabwean leader, Robert Mugabe, reported to have apologized for the attacks on foreign nationals in his country.
