ANC President Cyril Ramaphosa’s ability to lead South Africa is on trial, as Jacob Zuma’s continued occupation of the country’s highest office "does not sit well with most of society".
So says Lumkile Mondi, a senior lecturer at the School of Economics and Business Science of the University of the Witwatersrand.
Mondi says the economy requires the elimination of political risk and a strategy to stave off further downgrades – the political stalemate is a distraction.
Fixing South Africa’s economic woes starts with Zuma resigning as President, says Mondi, “he must go”.
