Recently, the president of the country has been under great pressure to take action against the Minister of Tourism. This came after her now infamous letter, which most politicians believed was terribly downplaying the country's constitution. The entire South African judiciary was dissatisfied with the letter and responded directly to Lindiwe Sisulu, but the president was urged to dismiss her, but he did nothing.
Cyril Ramaphosa's Opinion As the chairman of the African National Congress and the President of South Africa, he has said nothing since the article completely collapsed. I wonder why those who are supposed to keep the Constitution and the party are so quiet. An internal source at the African National Congress revealed that the only reason the president did not dismiss the Minister of Tourism was that he could lose his second chance as president of both the ANC and the country.
The move to dismiss the Minister of Tourism is said to have the potential to split the votes initially directed at Ramaphosa. Lindiwe Sisulu has been trending on social media platforms after her opinion piece and premiers, ministers said other top political leaders started distancing themselves from her to avoid unnecessary trends or being implicated in her issues. Recently, Lindiwe Sisulu has challenged Ramaphosa for a presidential race in the ANC, which can give Ramaphosa an ulterior motive to fire her, but that will raise suspicions regarding her (Lindiwe Sisulu) losing her job.
It is clear that Lamaposa is ignoring the Constitution in order to increase the likelihood of the second phase. Either the Constitution wins or you lose your second chance as president. At this point, it can be said that Ramaphosa is thinking only about himself, not the country. Please share your thoughts below and follow me for more insightful news
