The British government announced on Monday that South African President Cyril Ramaphosa will pay a state visit. This will be the first state visit since King Charles took the throne in place of his late mother Queen Elizabeth last month.
According to the palace, Ramaphosa and his wife Tshepo Motsepe have accepted the new British monarch’s offer to attend the state visit from November 22–24. Nelson Mandela, Thabo Mbeki, and Jacob Zuma all paid state visits to the United Kingdom.
According to British data, Britain exported 4 billion pounds ($4.5 billion) worth of products and services to South Africa in 2021, while the country’s imports from Britain totaled roughly 8 billion pounds. South Africa‘s fourth-largest export market is Great Britain.
Meanwhile, President Cyril Ramaphosa has been nominated for a return as party leader of the African National Congress, ANC, by his own branch in Soweto.
Paul Mashatile is the preferred Deputy President, while Nomvula Mokonyane is earmarked for the Deputy Secretary-General position.
The meeting comes ahead of the 55th national elective conference in December. Ramaphosa says the outcome of the meeting has been impressive and humbling.
