Background

The country is well aware of the fact that Cyril Ramaphosa has a lot of people backing him for his second term in the presidency. This is because he has been looked at as one of the party's most promising people but as of late, some members of the party, who he has called comrades for so long have made decisions that work against him. These decisions are threatening his chances of becoming the next president.

Report

One of the first decisions that have worked against the president is the one from the chairperson of the African National Congress in the Limpopo province. On Sunday he revealed that the decision to fully announce the backing of Ramaphosa in the next elections for his second term was not fully made by the ANC. This is after the premier had announced the ANC in Limpopo was fully backing Ramaphosa.

The second decision was taken that works against Ramaphosa are the one reported by insight factor. The following is what was said:

"ANC MP Mervyn Dirks has approached Scopa regarding the audio recording where President Ramaphosa is heard alluding to how State funds are used for party campaigns and therefore violating the PRECCA Act. "

What this means is that more scrutiny is going to be placed on Ramaphosa and the trust level is going to decrease. At such a point in the elections, Ramaphosa needs as much backing as possible.

Opinion

It seems the people who are his comrades also want him to fail. If he receives any more bad news from the party, he his chances for the second term will steadily decrease. The next few days will be very important.

What is your take on the matter?
