NUM still has confidence in Ramaphosa but seeks new public enterprises minister

Prof Susan Booysen says the president has to show that he is not being held hostage by factional politics.

While the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) remains confident in President Cyril Ramaphosa, the union has expressed a different view on Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan saying there have been no positive results since his appointment.

The National Education Health and Allied Workers Union has called for Gordhan to resign given the debilitating state of state-owned enterprises (SOEs), but the NUM says if Ramaphosa still wants the minister's services, it would be best to move him to another portfolio.

NUM President Joseph Montisetse says to turn things around better leadership is needed within the SOEs.

We believe that somebody that comes in must make an overhaul of all the state-owned enterprises, to put people that are able to manage these things in a way whereby resources can be protected.

Meanwhile researcher at the Mapungubwe Institute of Strategic Research, Prof Susan Booysen says bold action is needed from Ramaphosa.

We know that many small actions are being taken but these actions do not match the demands of the time. This is really a time where Cyril Ramaphosa has to show that he is not being held to ransom or held hostage by factional politics.
