The Mayor of Johannesburg, Kabelo Gwamanda, has withdrawn from the Russia-Africa Summit to attend to the ongoing recovery process, following the gas explosion on Bree Street last week.

Gwamanda said he cancelled the trip to deal with the restoration of services after the Bree Street gas explosion last week.

“The Russia-Africa summit is a critical engagement and as a city we were humbled to be invited to participate and showcase our city as a leading and vibrant centre of investment and development on the continent,” he said

The Russia-Africa Summit, which is currently taking place in St Petersburg, Russia, began on Thursday, with President Vladimir Putin welcoming the various African leaders. African leaders in attendance include President Cyril Ramaphosa, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni, and Comoros President Azali Assoumani.
