Cyril is the man to do the job, says The Cape Messenger readers who have responded to our poll.
The question was asked: If Cyril Ramaphosa is elected president of the African National Congress in December, will he go on to be a ruler who restores confidence in South Africa and its economy?
The overwhelming majority of 66 percent of readers said yes, he would.
Of course, 34 percent were left over who did not believe he would.
The ANC is holding its elective conference from 16 December to 20 December. It is now expected that a top nine will be elected – as opposed to a top six as in the past. It is expected that there will be two deputy presidents, up from one in the past.
