Xenophobic Attacks: Ramaphosa Booed During Mugabe Funeral Service

Cyril Ramaphosa took to the stage at Robert Mugabe’s funeral service, in Zimbabwe, to deliver his condolences but he was interrupted by boos from the crowd.

South Africa’s President, Cyril Ramaphosa was booed in Zimbabwe on Saturday afternoon when he addressed mourners at Robert Mugabe’s state funeral in the capital, Harare.

The funeral service, which took place at the National Sports Stadium, has seen heads of state and former presidents joining Zimbabweans in paying tribute to the former states man.

Ramaphosa was interrupted by boos from the crowd after he took to the stage to deliver his address.

In recent weeks, foreign nationals were attacked in South Africa during a spate of violent activity that led to shops being looted and property vandalized.

Twelve people have died, many have been arrested and hundreds of immigrants – including Nigerians and Zimbabwean – have left the country.

When he was finally allowed to speak, Ramaphosa apologised for the violence.
