ANC and Cyril Ramaphosa government are dragging Brand South Africa on the ground

SA’s leaderless mess!

While the country deals with myriad challenges – such as load shedding, water shedding, growing joblessness, poverty and inequality – we have been waiting for several days to hear if we are getting a new Cabinet following the ANC’s elective conference in December.

The announcement that ANC deputy president Paul Mashatile had officially become a member of the National Assembly, replacing ANC MP Tshilidzi Munyai, who resigned earlier this week, has set in motion the process to make Mashatile the country’s deputy president. The move comes after current Deputy President David Mabuza informed President Cyril Ramaphosa of his intention to resign a few days ago.

With South Africans feeling increasingly anxious about the state of the country, calls have been made to Ramaphosa to bring in those who show a new sense of purpose beyond trying to appease factions within the party following his second-term win last year. Names put forward for potential removal include Lindiwe Sisulu and Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma.

Sisulu previously attacked the constitutional democratic system and rule of law, while her campaign for presidency of the party, as well as that of Dlamini-Zuma’s, revealed they had both lost confidence in Ramaphosa. Concerns have also been raised about the performance of several other ministers in Ramaphosa’s Cabinet, especially as the country grapples with continuous load shedding. With many citizens feeling like the country is on a downward track.
