The President of South Africa, Cyril Ramaphosa has on Saturday been booed by the crowd that were present at late Mugabe’s funeral held in National Stadium in Harare.
According to reports, These reactions seemed to be based on the ongoing xenophobic violence in South Africa in the last month.
However, the president acknowledged the boos by saying “in the past two weeks, we as South Africans have been going through a challenging period.
Adding that, We have had acts of violence erupting in some parts of our country… This has led, as I can hear you’re responding to, to the deaths and injuries of a number of people.
But he insisted, “We as South Africans are not xenophobic”.
