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.

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.
