SEPANG, Jan 9 (Bernama) — Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak arrived home Monday from a two-day working visit to South Africa.
The special aircraft carrying the prime minister and wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor touched down at KL International Airport here at 2.40pm.
Najib was among 46 national leaders who gathered in Mangaung at Bloemfontein, a five-hour journey from Johannesburg on Sunday, to witness the 100th anniversary celebration of the South African ruling party, the African National Congress (ANC).
He was there at the invitation of South African President Jacob Zuma.
The Prime Minister’s presence at the celebration reflected Malaysia’s support for the ANC which had struggled to free South Africa from the apartheid policy, which was successfully attained in 1994.
Among those who came to welcome Najib at the airport were Information, Communications and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim and Women, Family and Comunity Development Minister Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil.
