President Ramaphosa should drop his 'mysterious' long game for once and do the right thing: fire Lindiwe Sisulu already, writes Adriaan Basson.

The biggest problem with President Cyril Ramaphosa's style of silent leadership is that it forces us to speculate about his state of mind and draw conclusions that may be completely wrong.

Ramaphosa wants us to believe that he is a constitutionalist who respects and upholds the rule of law. In fact, his entire Thuma Mina campaign was built on the promise that he would clean up the mess left by his predecessor from Nkandla and his friends from Dubai.
