Ramaphosa to visit DRC and South Sudan

The President of South Africa H.E. Cyril Ramaphosa will embark on a two days working visit from 15 to 16 April 2024, to the Democratic Republic of Congo to meet with its President H.E. Yoweri Museveni.

Topping the agenda, the two heads of states will be discussing African regional security and stability matters, including the ongoing conflict in the Eastern DRC.

Ramaphosa will then proceed to South Sudan where he will meet with President H.E Salva Kiir Mayardit, to strengthen bilateral relations between the two countries from 16 to 18 April 2024.

President Cyril Ramaphosa is expected to receive a detailed brief on the status of implementation of the Revitalised Agreement on the Resolution of Conflict in the Republic of South Sudan (R-ARCSS) which was signed on 12 September 2018.

The R-ARCSS is coming to an end on 22 February 2025 and must be preceded by elections scheduled for December 2024.

“It is in this context that President Ramaphosa has designated Deputy President Paul Mashatile, as his Special Envoy, to provide practical and political support to the parties to the R-ARCSS and the Revitalised Transitional Government of National Unity (R-TGoNU), towards achieving the measures set to achieve a democratic and peaceful end to the transitional period,” said Vincent Magwenya, the Spokesperson to the Presidency.
