Maimane calls on Ramaphosa to address unrest in Nigeria  

Published on

Mmusi Maimane has joined the mounting calls by Africans for Cyril Ramaphosa to address the unrest in Nigeria, in his capacity as the Chairman of the AU.

One South Africa Movement’s Mmusi Maimane took to Twitter on Wednesday, 21 October 2020, to call out President Cyril Ramaphosa for his supposed silence on the unrest in Nigeria. The country has been in the headlines since the lockdown that resulted in the alleged brutal killing of citizens at the hands of the police force and security personnel.

While various political and influential figures have come out to ask for the violence and brutality to stop, Ramaphosa has yet to formally comment on or address the situation. Amongst those questioning his silence is Maimane, who has since called on Ramaphosa to take action as the Chairman of the African Union (AU).

Maimane advised Ramaphosa to intervene, claiming, “Africa does not need more quiet diplomacy. This issue must be raised at the UNSC.”
