Ramaphosa on movement restriction from African countries: They responded like our previous colonizer

President Cyril Ramaphosa said it would have been great in the event that African nations didn't respond to the revelation of the Omicron variation of the Covid "like our previous colonizers". 

Rwanda, Mauritius, Seychelles and Egypt are among nations that forced travel limitations against Southern Africans directly following insight about the variation which is yet to be completely perceived. 

Ramaphosa was addressing journalists on his excursion to West Africa. 

Peruse: They are informal and biased: Ramaphosa on movement boycotts 

While President Cyril Ramaphosa will for the following week advocate for African solidarity and deregulation as he goes to Ghana and Senegal, among different nations, the customarily strategic legislator couldn't smother his indignation regarding the movement limitations. 

"I'm worried out of due regard to them, I mean they have their own reasons, however we might want to have a conversation with them. We would rather that they don't respond like our previous colonizers who rush to shut Africa down," President Ramaphosa said. 

The four African nations which forced the movement boycotts followed the course of the UK and US among other created countries which moved with flurry to close its ports to southern Africans. 

"Since I imagine that tragically they also have participated in this. We have the point of view that it's informal, and we would have loved them to be significantly more logical so we can track down arrangements and replies," the president said. 

Ramaphosa has approached the countries to lift the restriction on southern African voyagers, saying this will devastatingly affect the area's economies which are scarcely adapting under the brutal conditions achieved by the pandemic.
