as the tweet by PM MODI says this invitation will strengthen the bilateral relationship between two countries. This year we will be celebrating 150 years of Mahatma Gandhi, and Mahatma Gandhi has close link with South Africa as well.
Talking about the short brief history of Indian republic day, every year 26th January is celebrated as the republic day, first republic day was celebrated on 26th January 1950. On this day Indian national Constitution was implemented but constitution of India was adopted on 26th November 1949. The date chosen for this was 26th January because of the historical significance of date 26th January. In 1930 on 26th January Indian national congress announced the complete independence("purna Swaraj") that is why 26th January is chosen as the republic day.
Cyril Ramaphosa is the 5th president of South Africa. He has been the choice of Nelson Mandela as future president. He is a well known businessman, skillful negotiator and a strategist.
