Ramaphosa expected to lead economy

2014-05-25 10:47

Cape Town - Cyril Ramaphosa is expected to make a political comeback today after 16 years when President Jacob Zuma names him as his deputy – as is largely expected to happen.

According to the Sunday Independent newspaper, an informed source said the business tycoon’s main role would be to run the economy and restore investor confidence in the country.

He would also continue his mediation duties in war-torn countries such as the Central African Republic and South Sudan.

Ramaphosa is an astute negotiator and politician and co-founded the National Union of Mineworkers. He also played a key role in the negotiations that ended apartheid rule and helped draft the country’s constitution.

He quit politics in 1996 when Thabo Mbeki beat him to the position of deputy under Nelson Mandela.

However, Ramaphosa remained loyal to the ANC and his popularity among the members remained intact.
