Political analyst Karima Brown says a conflicting response from President Jacob Zuma and his deputy Cyril Ramaphosa on recent protests reveals divisions between the two.
On Sunday Ramaphosa told reporters that leaders should listen to concerns raised during this month’s protests against the President.
These were in marked contrast to Zuma’s comments on the marches.
The President says the protest action was racially motivated. He was speaking at the Twelve Apostles of Christ Church in Umgababa‚ near Durban on Sunday.
Brown gives details on the apparent division and other political headlines.
He [Ramaphosa] said that people own this democracy and by going to the streets they are exercising their democratic rights. Very different from President Jacob Zuma and would be hopeful president Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma.— Karima Brown, political analyst
Cyril Ramaphosa might have decided that he is not going to publicly disagree with the president on issues but it is very very clear those divisions are continuing.— Karima Brown, political analyst
