International Relations Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane is hosting a Nigerian delegation in Pretoria.

A Meeting between International Relations Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane and her Nigerian counterpart, Geoffrey Onyeama is underway in Pretoria.

The meeting, while being a part of the regular diplomatic strengthening of bilateral ties between South Africa and Nigeria, is also expected to address tensions resulting from a recent spate of attacks against foreigners, especially in parts of Johannesburg and Pretoria.

Sources also have it that another delegation from Nigeria’s Senate is expected at Parliament on Tuesday to engage with  South African MPs on similar issues.
