How is Cyril’s campaign going?
NJ Mokoena Free State
I think Cyril Ramaphosa’s campaign for ANC president is not going well as people on the ground, such as myself, and those who would also like to see him take the lead, have not been canvassed. The campaigning is done behind closed doors – much to our anxiety. He has my support, but the campaign is far away from us.

I think he needs to raise his visibility. He has a lot of support, but the state-capture crowd seems to be improving Jacob Zuma’s profile.
Yes, Ramaphosa’s campaign is going well. We who support him are aware of this and are satisfied with the progress. It’s of a high quality and organisational skills are involved.
We don’t need a harem of women in ANC colours to convince anyone that Cyril is a “blueblooded”, bona fide member of the party, in good standing.
He also fits the criteria of a presidential candidate. He does not need a corrupt incumbent to do his bidding at taxpayers’ expense.

Yes, the campaign is going well. We want the deputy president. We are tired of President Jacob Zuma, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma and their illmannered children.
Zuma rules us like a chief.
