South African President Cyril Ramaphosa, who is also the chair person of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) is today (3 February 2022) on a working visit to Mozambique, invited by the President of that country, Filipe Nyusi.
The working visit will further deepen the existing economical, political, cultural and social relations between the two countries.
In the year 1992, the two countries formally established a trade mission on a reciprocal basis, and on the 11th of October 1993 relations were upgraded to a full diplomatic status.
Ramaphosa will be accompanied by the minister of international relations and cooperation Candith Kashego-Dlamini and minister of defence and military veterans Thabang Makwetla.
He will pay a visit to South African troops that are part of the SADC Mission in Mozambique.
Ramaphosa will also be participating in the 53rd commemoration of the assassination of Dr Eduardo Mondlane, who is the founder and first President of Mozambique Liberation Front (FRELIMO)
These two countries are underpinned by strong historical and political bonds dating back to the liberation struggle.
