South Africa condemns riots in Brazil

South Africa strongly condemns the events that took place in Brazil this Sunday, 08 January 2023, that saw rioters storm the Congress and Supreme Court buildings in the capital city, Brasilia.

South Africa notes that the majority of the people of Brazil accepted the outcome of last year's free and fair general elections. The actions of the rioters will not succeed in undermining the will of the majority.

South Africa reaffirms its recognition of, and confidence in, President Lula da Silva's democratically elected government.
