Dhlamini ZumaCyril_Ramaphosa_

 

The media is South Africa has pitched Vice President Cyril Ramaphosa and President Zuma’s powerful wife Nkosazana Dhlamini Zuma in what is turning out to be a crawling battle that is fats turning into a fox trot and could soon be a sprit to succeed President Jacob Zuma. More seems to be coming as South Africa gears itself a for grueling but necessary radical economic reform, underpinned by the long delayed land reform programme. Things are getting exciting. As the rollout continues, Dhlamini- Zuma seems to have a broader and more critical grasp on issues that are critical for South Africa. She is a former Cabinet Minister. Cyril never was. She is former chairperson of ANC women’s league. Cyril has never been. She is former AU Commission chair. Cyril was never. She is very experienced in the broader political spectre and smarter than Cyril, who still has questions to answer on the Marikana deaths. Only time will tell.
