The possibility of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s visit to South Africa in August has sparked concerns and debates among the citizens. The International Criminal Court is after Putin for his alleged involvement in starting the war in Ukraine, which has led to suggestions on how to host him without violating legal regulations.

Hosting the BRICS Summit in Ciskei as a Solution

One potential solution is to host the upcoming BRICS summit in Ciskei, an independent homeland that gained independence from South Africa in 1981. This idea has been proposed to provide Putin with a safe location during his visit and to revive the potential benefits of the independent homeland.

Ciskei had its own laws and jurisdictions, which were strict but effective in maintaining discipline and low crime rates. The area has been remembered by many citizens as a time of order and stability.

Bulembu Airport as a Safe Landing Spot

Bulembu Airport, located in a rural area of the Eastern Cape province, has been suggested as a safe landing spot for Putin. The airport is far from any major cities and regulated by the Ciskei government. Eastern Cape Premier Oscar Mabuyane welcomed the arrival of the United Arab Emirates presidential entourage at the airport, following all Home Affairs department regulations.

Complexities of International Relations

The conversation surrounding Putin’s visit highlights the complexities of international relations and the challenges of upholding legal regulations while still maintaining diplomatic ties. Ultimately, it will be up to South African officials to decide the best course of action.

Hosting the BRICS summit in Ciskei may provide a viable solution for Putin’s visit to South Africa. It could provide a safe location for his visit while reviving the potential benefits of the independent homeland. Nevertheless, South African officials will have to weigh the pros and cons before making their decision.
