Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday began a visit to South Africa and minced no words when he condemned in the strongest terms the attack on Nigerians and other Africans in the country, and called for implementation of measures meant for the prevention of such incidents.

He also called for the protection of foreigners.

Buhari is visiting South Africa weeks after xenophobic attacks in Johannesburg stirred tension between Nigeria and South Africa, Africa’s leading economies.

On Thursday, Buhari and his host Cyril Ramaphosa went into long-planned talks aimed at bolstering trade ties and political cooperation as both leaders struggle to boost their flagging economies.

But the talks were expected to be overshadowed by the violence in South Africa targeting foreigners, which included Nigerians. Mobs descended on foreign-owned stores in and around Johannesburg in early September, destroying properties and looting.
