The ANC is in ICU! Can Ramaphosa bring the party back to life?

With the 2019 elections looming, one political expert is asking whether President Ramaphosa can transform the ANC from Zuma's politics to a party capable of convincing South Africans that it can give directions again.

Ralph Mathekga says it is becoming a complex issue.

There is resilience for transformation within the ANC.

The reality is setting in that you cannot solely rely on one person.

Mr Ramaphosa can drive this change, you need critical mass with the ANC that is willing to transform their own party and do away with their patronage.

Mathekga says the 'New Dawn' is about being practical by making sure you don't pick too many fights as president.

The ANC is at a very critical stage. I say the party is in ICU so his trying to help the party to get up but the patient is insisting that look I'm not sick, I'm okay leave me alone.
