Wits School of Governance Professor Ivor Sarakinsky gives an analysis of ANC president Cyril Ramaphosa testimony at state capture.

Wits School of Governance Professor Ivor Sarakinsky says day 1 of African National Congress (ANC) Cyril Ramaphosa's testimony at the state capture commission was underwhelming.

Ramaphosa is appearing at the state capture commotion in his capacity as the ANC president.

Speaking to Nickolaus Bauer on the Clement Manyathela Show, Sarakinsky says the testimony lacked details.

He could have taken the country into confidence a bit more and revealed a bit more and not get into generalities and give long-winded explanations when pressed for answers.

In that sense, I would say possible lost opportunity in terms of trying to clear the air a bit.

Sarakinsky says Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo probed Ramaphosa on various questions.
