Will Ramaphosa survive the motion of no confidence if it's laid against him: Opinion

President Cyril Ramaphosa may not survive the motion of no confidence as Jacob Zuma survived it several times during his presidency

With an estimated 50 million having been lost and at least 330 people who have lost their lives also during the #freeZuma campaign which involved the looting, surely the heads must roll here

The only way to do that is to disband the current leadership of the ANC and it's cabinet via a motion of no confidence which must be tabled against Ramaphosa and his ministers opposition parties including some of the ANC members within the party

The African Transformation Movement recently ran shot of support from other political parties to table a strong no vote of confidence against Ramaphosa and they may now turn to the supreme court

This will be the continuous battle to prove that Thandi Modise who is now a speaker of the National Assembly made a material mistake or error of law in her decision to have the vote of no confidence by open ballot

With the recent developments in the country and some of Ramaphosas ministers seemingly overwhelmed by these lootings and killings especially in KZN, the damage is beyond the ANC leadership, and the party may quietly leave the leadership to another party

However , Ramaphosa may rather look within the ANC to have an interim President, Lindiwe Sisulu being the nearest as David Mabuza is having health problems currently and can't stand the candidature

It may be a miracle if Ramaphosas may reach the 2022 presidential conference with the state of affairs in the country at the moment
