Political analyst Karima Brown says Ramaphosa is obviously in campaign mode and that this is the most clear message he has sent out to the public on the matter.

Speaking very passionately, saying he s no longer going to keep quiet, making very huge testaments, calling on the monies that have been stolen as as a result of corruption to be returned and calling on that judicial commission of inquiry and saying that it really needs to come together now.

Ramaphosa also appealed to the SACP to stay in the alliance.

Brown says unless factions within the ANC, including Ramaphosa's camp, address how these individuals will be held accountable, the ruling party will have a difficult time convincing the public.

Whilst it is fighting a battle around control, if people see that as a narrow battle just for power and that the ANC i actually doing very little about holding those who have been implicated in the theft of billions of rand, if they are not going to be held accountable, that is going to be difficult for even Cyril Ramaphosa to cross in terms of the credibility stakes.
