President Cyril Ramaphosa arrived in the Republic of Senegal on Sunday on an official visit at the invitation of His Excellency President Macky Sall. The visit marks the end of President Ramaphosa’s four-nation visit to West Africa which has included the Republics of Nigeria, Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana.
On Monday, 6 December 2021, President Ramaphosa will participate in the Dakar International Forum on Peace and Security. The programme for the Official Visit includes bilateral discussions and the signing of a memorandum of agreement on political and diplomatic consultations between the two countries.
The Forum is an initiative of the Senegalese Government and has taken place annually since 2014. It is attended by Heads of State and Governments, international partners and organisations involved in peace and security matters.
This year’s theme is “The challenges of stability and emergence in Africa in a post-COVID-19 world”.
The Cheikh Anta Diop University of Dakar will confer an honorary doctorate on President Ramaphosa at an event held at the university. In 1992, Cheikh Anta Diop University also honoured South Africa’s founding President, Tata Nelson Mandela, with an honorary doctorate.
