How Cyril Ramaphosa and Roelf Meyer joined forces to bring democracy to SA
Some say South Africa's history may have turned out very differently if Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa and politician Roelf Meyer had not set aside their political differences to bring about a peaceful transition to democracy.
The two former political counterparts - now dear friends - worked together to negotiate during a sensitive time in the country.
Ramaphosa and Meyer spoke with Melanie Verwoerd, standing in for presenter Redi Tlhabi, about what it took to bring the African National Congress (ANC) and National Party (NP) to agreement.
At an organisational level, our relationship had matured and was based on accountability to our principles. Nothing was hidden. It was openness and a total commitment by the two entities to find solutions to the country's problems.Cyril Ramaphosa, Deputy President
