This Wednesday, August 28, the two heads of state had to talk about this situation, while they were in Yokohama to attend the Tokyo International Conference on the Development of Africa.
South African President Cyril Ramaphosa expressed sympathy for Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari. “As for the Nigerians who are dying in South Africa, we are very unhappy about that. It is clear that our criminal justice system is working on it. We do not support murders, “Ramaphosa said, saying” no one should ever be killed “in South Africa.
