President Ramaphosa to attend inauguration of President Nyusi

President Cyril Ramaphosa will tomorrow, Wednesday 15 January 2020, undertake a working visit to Maputo in the Republic of Mozambique to attend the inauguration of His Excellency PresidentElect Mr Filipe Nyusi.

Mozambique held Presidential, Legislative and Provincial elections on 15 October 2019. PresidentElect Nyusi was the declared winner of the general election and will as a result serve a second term in office.

South Africa and Mozambique enjoy cordial bilateral relations, underpinned by strong historical and political bonds that date back to the era of the liberation struggle. The relationship is informed by historical, geographical as well as cultural affinities between the peoples of the two countries.

In his congratulatory message to the PresidentElect, President Ramaphosa said he was looking forward to working with President Nyusi as the two neighbouring countries sought to enhance conditions for increased levels of domestic and foreign investment aimed at economic growth, the reduction of inequality and the eradication of poverty.
