Ramaphosa seems to be clueless now - Sikonathi Mantshantsha

President Cyril Ramaphosa is not even trying to implement the decisions that must be made in order to achieve that which he desires - according to Daily Maverick associate editor at Scorpio Sikonathi Mantshantsha.

Ramaphosa told the ANC Women's League in a meeting on Tuesday night that he will turn the economy around.

Speaking to Kieno Kammies on the 'The Finance Week That Was' Mantshantsha says Ramaphosa has run out of ideas.

He (Ramaphosa) told them we will turn this economy around whether people like it or not. I don't know who wouldn't want the economy being turned around to perform.

He forgot to tell them how this will be done and actually how this will be done. We have been waiting for quite a while and we are going the other way instead.

The president seems to be clueless now and seems to have run out or ideas completely or at least he is not even trying to implement the decisions that must be made in order to achieve that which he desires.
