Given the current state of affairs in the country, it is clear that the country is sluggishly approaching presidential elections, with ordinary citizens wondering who will be the country's next president. We may argue that David Mabuza, as the present vice president, is competent of becoming the next president, but the African National Congress RET forces appear to have other plans for that position.
According to sources, the ANC's RET group is looking for a presidential candidate and has identified Mathews Phosa, among others, as a possible challenger to President Cyril Ramaphosa next year.
They've reportedly chosen Mathew Phosa to be the African National Congress's chairperson if Ramaphosa is ousted in some fashion.
This is due to the fact that the individual being mentioned has been so inactive in the party that many people have forgotten who he is. The RET forces still believe he'd be a fantastic ANC head, owing to his spotless record and long association with the party.
In my opinion, the RET forces made an extremely poor decision, and they should return to the drawing board and choose a better candidate for the role.
