I have arrived in New York for the 73rd Session of the United Nationals General Assembly, where I will be participating for the first time as President. We have a very busy week ahead and I’m looking forward to rich and fruitful engagement with other world leaders. #UNGA pic.twitter.com/vd2Glr8SBU

Cyril Ramaphosa – South Africa
South African president Cyril Ramaphosa took over as head of state and government following the resignation of Jacob Zuma on February 14 this year when he was sworn in as president after parliamentary approval. He was then the leader of the ANC party and Deputy President.
Ramaphosa is busy in New York since he arrived on Sunday as the UN is honouring Nelson Mandela. This is his first participation as the president of South Africa.
