Taking to Twitter at the end of the meeting, the former governor wrote;
“I had a fruitful meeting with the former President of South Africa, Thabo Mvuyelwa Mbeki in Johnesburg joined by my wife, Mrs Ifunanya Kalu. As leaders we both deliberated on pertinent issues especially ending civil unrests by promoting unity amongst all Africans.”
Igbere TV recalls that Kalu and his wife, Ifunanya, have been in South Africa since Thursday on a business trip.
They were on Monday night hosted to a dinner by His Excellency, Sir Chief Dr Gabriel Osawaru Igbinedion, the Esama of Benin Kingdom.
Similarly, popular Nigerian pastor and president/founder of Believers Loveworld aka Christ Embassy, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome on Sunday played host to the former governor in a special church service organized in his South African church, as part of activities to mark his 59th birthday.
