Xenophobic Attacks: South Africa sends envoys to seven African countries

President Cyril Ramaphosa

President Cyril Ramaphosa has dispatched three special envoys to seven African countries to deliver messages of Pan-African unity and solidarity following xenophobic attacks in South Africa, reports Xinhua.
The special envoys will deliver a message from Ramaphosa regarding the violent attacks on foreign nationals and destruction of property, according to presidential spokesperson, Khusela Diko.
Diko said  that the envoys will reassure fellow African countries that South Africa is committed to the ideals of Pan-African unity and solidarity.
They will also reaffirm South Africa’s commitment to the rule of law. The envoys who will visit Nigeria, Niger, Ghana, Senegal, Tanzania, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Zambia, will brief governments in the identified African countries about the steps that the South African government is taking to bring a stop to the attacks and to hold the perpetrators to account.
African Parliamentary News recalls that South Africa has recently been hit by a spate of violence for the past few weeks which resulted in the death of 12 people, including 10 South Africans and two foreigners.
