Biden congratulated by African leaders, See What they said.

With Joe Biden's victory in the U.S. presidential election barely announced, African leaders have already begun to congratulate the Democrat on his success.

Among the first to react, South African President Cyril Ramaphosa congratulated the Biden-Harris duo and said he is "looking forward to working with them and strengthening the bonds of friendship and cooperation between the two countries.

Among others to react was Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari. He said his victory "is a reminder that democracy is the best form of government because it allows people to change their government peacefully".

In Gabon, President Ali Bongo Ondimba reminded him that "the close relationship built over the decades will be further strengthened in the future.

Reactions also came from the African Union Commission. Chadian AU commission chairman Moussa Faki Mahamat also congratulated Joe Biden and hopes to see stronger US-African relations.

Biden's popularity is already strong in some countries. In Kogelo, Kenya, the home village of former President Barack Obama's family, residents marched in support of the Democratic candidate in memory of his eight years as vice president of Barack Obama.
