Relating to the renewed xenophobic attacks in South Africa, President Cyril Ramaphosa was on Saturday, at the Funeral of ex Zimbabwean Leader, Robert Mugabe, booed by attendees at the National Stadium In Harare.
The president received jeers and whistles before he apologised for the actions of his compatriots.
“I stand before you as a fellow African to express my regret and apologise for what has happened in our country,” Ramaphosa said after one of the organisers tried to calm the crowd.
His comments were met with cheers and blasts of sound horns from the crowd.
South Africa, the continent’s second-largest economy, is a major destination for other African migrants. But they are often targeted by some locals who blame them for a lack of jobs.
But with shops and homes burned and looted and clashes between armed mobs of looters and police, hundreds of migrants from Mozambique and Zimbabwe have fled to shelters.
Nigeria’s government has flown around 600 of its citizens home from Johannesburg after some of them were targeted in the violence.
