Nothing about the ANC's revived commitments suggest the slow, steady, business-as-usual approach the party has maintained under Cyril Ramaphosa will work going forward. The party is racing against time while its processes of cleaning itself up are running at a snail's pace, writes Ongama Mtimka.
It's 05:05 on a Saturday. Alan Winde wakes up to be greeted by a missed
call notice on his phone. He checks his WhatsApp messages. One reads: "Hi
Alan, I called to check how I could best enable you to do your job better in
the coming week, give me a call please. Cyril."
That's the kind of personal touch and follow-through that can set President Cyril Ramaphosa apart from mediocrity in his second term.
