ANC deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa. Ramaphosa has called for the vocabulary of labour interactions between workers and management to become more dialogue-oriented rather than dispute-driven.
JOHANNESBURG - Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa has arrived in Windhoek, Namibia ahead of Dr Hage Geingob&39;s inauguration at the weekend, the presidency said on Friday.
"South Africa enjoys strategic political and economic relations with Namibia," his spokesman Ronnie Mamoepa said in a statement.
"Relations between the peoples of the two countries were fashioned in the theatre of struggle against apartheid and colonialism."
Ramaphosa would be accompanied by International Relations Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane and South Africa&39;s High Commissioner to Namibia.
He is attending the inauguration on behalf of President Jacob Zuma, who would be attending Public Service and Administration Minister Collins Chabane&39;s funeral on Saturday in his home town Xikundu, in Limpopo.
Chabane and Sergeants Lesiba Sekele and Lawrence Lentsoane were killed on Sunday morning when a truck allegedly made a U-turn in front of their car on the N1 between Mokopane and Polokwane in Limpopo.
Ramaphosa was expected back in the country later on Saturday.
