Here Is what happened to Ramaphosa security team in Nigeria and he calls for urgent meeting

The coronavirus loomed large during his trip, with travel bans swifly being imposed on South Africa and other countries in Southern Africa by scores of countries including in Europe, in the US, the UK and Australia as well as some African countries.

After South African scientists discovered and reported on a mutated variant of Covid-19, dubbed omicron early in November.

Lockdown on the cards? Ramaphosa calls for urgent NCCC meeting. The NCCC will convene an urgent sitting as soon as President Ramaphosa returns from his West African tour.

Ramaphosa's week-long tour of four countries in West Africa was primarily intended to canvas support and solidarity from heads of state, as the cost of the travel bans mounted each day.

Should South Africa brace for a hard lockdown? the president urged the NCCC to urgently look at omicron interventions as Covid-19 infections surge.

Ramaphosa will return from his West African tour on Wednesday. Meanwhile, members of his security team who tested positive while in Abuja, Nigeria had already been airlifted to South Africa.
