When it comes to deciding whether Cyril Ramaphosa is currently the best president South Africa has ever heard, the country has been split in two. Some believe he is doing exactly what he was elected to do and that the country is in better hands than it has been in the past, while others have referred to him as a dictator because of the way he has been running the country.
Despite the fact that some people have loved him up until this point, they have begun to doubt their ability to place their trust in him after he made an extremely uncharacteristic move. Ramaphosa described the acts of the free Jacob Zuma protesters as a "attempt at insurrection" at the time, and this can be remembered. This implied that they were attempting to depose him as the leader of South Africa and the government that he led.
He was made to look foolish in front of South Africa at the time by the minister of defense, who contradicted him around that time. Her removal from power was demanded by many people, and President Cyril Ramaphosa obliged by firing her during the cabinet reshuffle. However, much to everyone's surprise, she has returned to a position of authority.
On Thursday, it was announced that the former minister of defense had been chosen to serve as the speaker of the House of Commons in the upcoming legislative session. This rumor began spreading last week, when it was reported that she was the top candidate Cyril Ramaphosa wished to hire for the position.
The fact that Cyril Ramaphosa is also recycling members of parliament is causing people to question his authority at this point in time. Cyril was expected to have the authority to select new blood for South Africans because of his educational background, but this has not been the case. It appears that the move to remove the minister of defense was simply intended to get South Africans to stop criticizing him, and that he then reinstated her with an even higher salary.
It is incomprehensible why she has found herself in that position yet again after defying the president, but it appears that many people are confused about how Ramaphosa is operating at the moment in South Africa.
What are your thoughts on the subject? How much confidence do you have in Cyril Ramaphosa now that the speaker of parliament has been elected by a person he had previously fired?
