SA opposition slams African governments over Gaza

Date: May 16, 2018

South Africa's opposition Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema has slammed African governments which were part of the ceremony for the inauguration of the US embassy in Jerusalem.

The ceremony was endorsed by more than two-dozen African countries including Nigeria, Kenya, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Angola, and Zambia and marks the US's official recognition of Jerusalem as the capital city of Israel. 
The move has been met with fierce criticism by some western powers and pro-Palestine human rights groups, resulting in South Africa withdrawing its ambassador to Israel. 
This follows the killing of nearly 60 Palestinian protesters and the wounding of 2700 more along the the Gaza-Israel border.
