Cyril wins round 1

Maxwell KwaZulu-Natal From the per­spec­tive of prov­inces it would seem that the Eastern Cape, North­ern Cape, West­ern Cape, Gaut­eng and Mpumalanga sup­port Cyril Ramaphosa to be pres­i­dent. Thabo Mbeki was deputy to Nel­son Man­dela and Mbeki be­came the next pres­i­dent. Zuma was deputy to Mbeki though Zuma tor­pe­doed Mbeki to be the next pres­i­dent. In these in­stances we never heard about any chal­lenger to Mbeki or Zuma when the time came for each to move up. The ques­tion must be asked why sud­denly Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma must step in, not even as deputy pres­i­dent, but as pres­i­dent. Zuma’s ex-wife, no­gal! To drive a cover-up per­haps? Or even quash ev­ery­thing? Some­thing is very rot­ten in the state of Den­mark! South Africa rise and do the right thing or join the ranks of other ba­nana republics of Africa. Me­likaya Ndz­ima Eastern Cape This is a dip­stick to measure who is pow­er­ful. I per­son­ally think that vic­tory goes to Cyril but, more sig­nif­i­cantly, it means that the gen­eral mem­ber­ship of the ANC is see­ing the need to change lead­er­ship. Up Cyril, up Cyril! You promise to be the glue to bring the ANC to­gether. The gov­ern­ment and the chief jus­tice as legislators have failed black le­gal prac­ti­tion­ers. The gov­ern­ment be­ing the main cul­prit as it em­ploys white le­gal prac­ti­tion­ers in all le­gal mat­ters. Edwin Free State It is a note­wor­thy de­vel­op­ment that gives hope, and a very im­por­tant early sign that the bal­ance of forces in­side the ANC is start­ing to favour the forces of change. Kereng Gaut­eng I sup­port Ramaphosa. Mpikelelo Free State Cyril is the right man for the po­si­tion of pres­i­dent and leader of the ANC. It is time for Zuma to step down to save the ANC in the 2019 na­tional elec­tion. It’s not about Zuma, it’s about ANC-lov­ing peo­ple. Melvin Lim­popo Gwede Man­tashe is deal­ing with the chal­lenge of build­ing and pro­tect­ing South Africa over pro­tect­ing those de­stroy­ing our land. The truth is the truth. Let him do his job.
