The study of Cyril Ramaphosa, South Africa's deputy president and new head of its governing party, is generating a great deal of heat, and not much light.
Cyril Ramaphosa has secured the leadership of South Africa's governing ANC. But he may not be able to clean up the mess left by Jacob Zuma given the other members of the party's leadership team.
Unless parliament passes a motion of no confidence in him, which is not on the cards any time soon, Zuma's future depends on whether he's weakened in the African National Congress, not parliament.
South Africa's governing ANC appears to have lost claim to being a leader of society. This is clear from the outcome of its policy conference.
The policy conference of South Africa's governing ANC will be remembered for a party in disarray, plagued with internal dissent.
The latest backlash against South Africa's President Jacob Zuma sees demands for his removal grow wider and deeper than ever before.
In his recent state of the nation address South Africa's President Jacob Zuma spoke emphatically of "radical economic transformation" causing nationwide debate. What does it really mean?
The stakes have not been higher since the heady days of the early 1990s when South Africa also looked over the brink. Now it is less about brink and more about who will blink
In this new world where its lost thousands of votes does South Africa's ruling ANC know who it is, how to be in opposition, or how it might fight its way back to winning ways?
Ironically, the only feasible way of removing President Zuma lies outside the prescribed formal structures of the constitutional processes -- at the head office of the governing ANC.
