'Ramaphosa knows he's got his work cut out with regard to state security'

President Cyril Ramaphosa will face his second oral reply since his election, on Tuesday afternoon.

He will answer questions from members of Parliament in the National Assembly.

Ramaphosa is expected to answer questions as to whether or not he will appoint a commission of inquiry to investigate allegations of “dysfunction, malfeasance, corruption and gross abuse of public resources” by the police’s Crime Intelligence division and the State Security Agency.

Karima Brown spoke to political analyst Vukani Mde on this and more of what can be expected in the Q and A session.

I think on the issue of the security apparatus, the entire state security apparatus, President Cyril Ramaphosa knows he has got his work cut out for him.

Vukani Mde, Political Analyst

It is one of the few areas, in a sense,where Ramaphosa remains politically vulnerable and he is aware of that political vulnerability.

Commenting on recent developments in the case of suspended South African Revenue Service (Sars) commissioner Tom Moyane who is reportedly planning to take President Cyril Ramaphosa to court, Mde says Ramaphosa probably has an eye on fixing Sars as matter of extreme urgency.

Sars probably alongside Eskom is the most important fight for the state capture project. I think that resident Ramaphosa probably has his eye on fixing Sars as a matter of extreme urgency.

Vukani Mde, Political Analyst

Nothing else will matter if he does not fix Sars on the one hand and the security apparatus on the other and I think both of those fights are getting started this week.
