South Africa has apologised to Ghana over a spate of xenophobic attacks which occurred recently in that country.
Twelve people were killed earlier this month when the locals attacked businesses owned by black foreigners.
A special envoy from South Africa, Jeff Radebe, on Tuesday, 17 September 2019, on behalf of the President of South Africa, Cyril Ramaphosa, delivered a message of apology to the government and people of Ghana for the attacks.
President Akufo-Addo accepted the apology in good faith and urged the South African authorities to bring the perpetrators of the attacks to book as soon as possible.
Three Ghanaians were attacked and injured while five were arrested by the South African authorities in the heat of the disturbances.
