South African presidential hopeful, Cyril Ramaphosa has reiterated his readiness for the ANC’s top job.
He was speaking on Tuesday at the Gordon Institute of Business Science in Johannesburg. In his speech, he used the analogy of a pilot, saying the pilot had been flying the plane but it’s the “co-pilot’s plane now”.
With regards to the economy, he indicated that there was the need for radical economic transformation in South Africa. Media sources quoted him as saying; ‘‘Radical economic transformation is therefore not a break with existing policy. It does not represent a new uncertain path,’‘.
He has been endorsed by the Northern Cape as well as by the ANC Gauteng chairperson and is said to enjoy popularity in the Eastern Cape.
So far, his most formidable opponent remains former African Union Commission chairperson and ex-wife of President Zuma, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma. With the elections still months away (December), the race seems to already be getting tough.
