Ramaphosa pro-unity even if he is called weak by detractors

But while he was away, there are appears to be growing dissent with reports that some have been planning to remove him.
EWN Senior Political Reporter, Qaanitah Hunter says the President seems to be very focused in what he says are deliberate efforts to unite the party.
He says that he is considering everyone, even his detractors when making decisions. And he says that he can understand why people are saying to him why didn't you deal with Supra Mahumapelo, why did you delay in dealing with former president Jacob Zuma.Qaanitah Hunter, EWN Reporter
He says he was deliberate. He says even if he is regarded as a weak leader, it doesn't matter particularly because he says he is on a path of forging unity.Qaanitah Hunter, EWN Reporter
She adds that the President faces a dichotomy as he is building economic strength internationally but there are persisting problems back home.
