Earlier today, I met and held talks with President of the Republic of #SouthAfrica and the #SADC Chairman, His Excellency Cyril Ramaphosa.
During our meeting, I congratulated Mr Ramaphosa for his election as #ANC President and President of the Republic of South Africa.
I wish to reaffirmed my government’s commitment in cooperating with South Africa in areas of trade and investment for the mutual benefit of our people.
I thank you.
