'Ramaphosa ought to reach out to Nigeria'
President Cyril Ramaphosa has officially assumed the position of chairperson of the African Union (AU) with tensions said to have been laid bare between South Africa and Nigeria.
UJ's Centre for Africa-China Studies director Dr David Monyae says at a bilateral level, Ramaphosa ought to reach out to Nigeria.
It is a very important country and this comes at time where the relationship between Nigeria and South Africa haven't been that good especially on matters concerning the AU and leadership of AU. These are unnecessary, petty squabbles that the two countries cannot afford given the mammoth task to handle African issues particularly around the trade agreement.Dr David Monyae , Director - Centre for Africa-China Studies at UJ
Speaking on some of Ramaphosa's priorities, Monyae says this includes bringing in global stakeholders in dealing with conflict in Libya and what he says is the never-ending Zimbabwean crisis, as well as a focus on terrorism in Mozambique.
Those are key low-hanging fruits but the trade agreement is another area.Dr David Monyae , Director - Centre for Africa-China Studies at UJ
