As talks between President Jacob Zuma and ANC president Cyil Ramaphosa continue, South Africans are eagerly waiting to know who who will deliver the State of the Nation Address (Sona).
Analysts say it is possible the two men are both looking to get the best out of the situation.
Speaking to Karima Brown about what could be going on behind close doors, her studio guest Advocate Vasu Gounden alluded to the fact that both Zuma and Ramaphosa have in many instances proven their good negotiating skills.
Gounden, the executive director of the African Centre for the Constructive Resolution of Disputes (Accord) says that Ramaphosa is a constitutionalist and will negotiate that Zuma's exit done constitutionality and within rule of law.
We must remember that justice and peace are not always bedfellows.— Vasu Gounden, Accord Executive Director
Brown's other guest, Professor Jakkie Cilliers, says that Cryil Ramaphosa has been eyeing the presidentcy for several years.
He adds that President Zuma's days are numbered and, in fact, can perhaps be counted in hours, because power is shifting very quickly.
Meanwhile Associate Professor in Public Law at UCT Professor Richard Calland tells Brown that Ramaphosa has to move carefully and take the majority of the ANC and his deputy David Mabuza with him in every step he takes.Click below to listen to the discussion:
