The President of Rwanda Paul Kagame wants South Africa expelled from the African Union over the latest xenophobic attacks there against African migrants.
Mr. Kagame, who is credited with developing and stabilizing Rwanda but also turning himself into a dictator and president for life while destabilizing neighboring Democratic Republic of Congo, said the expulsion would send a clear message that Africa must be united and indivisible in the face of challenges of globalization.
“When I hear my counterpart Ramaphosa say that only one foreigner was killed and there were only ten deaths, I think the Republic of South Africa must just be expelled from all African Union bodies,” Kagame, a past chairperson of the African Union, was quoted as telling local media in Rwanda.
“Africa is called upon to be united and indivisible in the face of challenges of the 21st century that include globalization.”
Zimbabwean newspaper Zimbabwe Voice reported on Monday that “(President Cyril Ramaphosa of South Africa) had a torrid time on Saturday at the State funeral of the late former President Robert Mugabe in Harare when crowds booed and jeered at him as he prepared to read his eulogies for Mugabe.
Ramaphosa had to apologize to pacify the crowds, the newspaper added.
