[LISTEN] '10 things Cyril Ramaphosa must do urgently'
Talk Radio 702's Azania Mosaka talks to Mpumelelo Mkhabela, a fellow at the Centre for the Study of Governance Innovation at the University of Pretoria.
CAPE TOWN - The ANC's electoral success in 2019 now rests on the shoulders of the new leadership, namely Cyril Ramaphosa.
Ramaphosa was elected as head of the African National Congress (ANC) this week.
University of Pretoria's Mpumelelo Mkhabela says: "His election here was not only approval for what he can do, but it was also a rejection of the Zuma administration in a way. Although he is part of it, we know the government is set up in such a way that the president has all the executive power."
Mkhabela says Ramaphosa has no excuses as the ANC president and needs to move quickly to restore the integrity of the ANC.
