'Ramaphosa alone can't fix the country'
The new SA President made many promises in his first address, including putting the people of the country first, and working with opposition parties to achieve this.
Ben Theron, Chief Operating Officer at the Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (Outa) says that this is needed to put the country back on track, but it up to everyone to achieve this properly.
We know as South Africans, must all work together to achieve these objectives. [Ramaphosa] alone cannot do that. It is important that we work with him.Ben Theron, COO at Outa
But what is more important is the President involves South Africans in the process and civil society (plays an active role) more than ever before.Ben Theron, COO at Outa
Sipho Pityana, Save South Africa convener says that the leadership that Ramaphosa assembles around himself is vital. He adds that government is the key driver of change.
It is going to be important that he assembles creditable leadership around himself, that will be worthy of the trust of all of us.Ben Theron, COO at Outa
That makes it possible therefore for us, as civil society, as business, trade unions and other formations to find the necessary confidence to partner with government in dealing with the vexed and difficult challenges in the country.Ben Theron, COO at Outa
