Opinion: Cyril Ramaphosa must quit Cabinet and mobilise from the outside

Xolani Gwala gives his view on the legitimacy of the new cabinet and questions Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa's role.

Radio 702's Xolani Gwala says Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa must resign from President Jacob Zuma's cabinet and affirm his position on the reshuffle.

On Friday Ramaphosa made it clear that he does not agree with the axing of former Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan.

He said that when Zuma met with the ANC's top six last week, he arrived with a pre-prepared list and was not necessarily consulting with senior members of the ANC.

Gwala has therefore questioned Ramaphosa's leadership and the legitimacy of the new Cabinet.

You have a Cabinet that has not been legitimized by the party's three very senior officials.

Xolani Gwala, 702 Breakfast anchor

How does he continue to serve in a cabinet that has no political legitimacy, why does he think that there is no contradiction in him criticising the changes publicly and him continuing to serve in the very same cabinet?

Xolani Gwala, 702 Breakfast anchor

Logically if number one fails, you then expect number two take charge.... arguing that he needs to continue serving the public is more self preservation than it is leadership.
