The government of South Africa led by Cyril Ramaphosa has sent three special envoys each to seven African countries to deliver messages of pan-African unity and solidarity following xenophobic attacks in the former apartheid enclave.
Presidential spokesperson, Khusela Diko, who confirmed the development on Sunday, said the special envoys would reassure fellow African countries that South Africa was committed to the ideals of pan-African unity and solidarity.
According to Diko, the envoys would also reaffirm South Africa’s commitment to the rule of law.
“The envoys will visit Nigeria, Niger, Ghana, Senegal, Tanzania, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Zambia.
“They 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,” Diko added.
