There have been reports that the presidents of Rwanda, the Democratic
Republic of the Congo and Malawi have pulled out of the World Econonic
Forum Africa event holding in South Africa because of the xenophobic
attacks going on in the country.
However, a Rwandan
Government official has denied these reports. She stated that President
Paul Kagame of Rwanda is unable to attend the event, but this has
nothing to do with the xenophobic attacks in South Africa.
