Over the past few months, South Africa has been discussing the possibility of having former president Jacob Zuma son Duduzani Zuma become the next president of the country. This was obviously welcomed with different emotions as some believe that it was only a stunt and he will never make a proper politician.
There was also the fact that Cyril Ramaphosa who is currently the president of South Africa had a very great following in the country and many people were likely to vote for him. That has however changed over the past few months and now it seems like whoever is going to be going against him might have a shot at the presidency.
A survey that was done and reported by News24 highlighted how South Africans have totally lost all hope for Cyril Ramaphosa. It is said that when they voted for him back in 2017 they had a lot of hope that he would become the next best president of the country.
In fact, it was said that he will save the country from its troubles as it was assumed former president Jacob Zuma had left it in shambles. Now, only four years later, the very same people who had voted for him and vouched that he will be one of the greatest presidents in the country are saying that the country is in worse condition than it was back when Zuma was the president.
This then means fewer people are likely to vote for him in the next coming elections and this means that Duduzani Zuma has fewer people to worry about when it comes to votes.
I can strongly believe that the power that Cyril Ramaphosa had against the country has been weakened. This then means he will be having fewer people vote for him and that will advantage the opposition. If Duduzani plays his cards right, he might come out on top as many vouch to stop the corruption in South Africa by removing Ramaphosa.
What is your take on the matter? Do you believe this vote of no confidence would give Duduzani Zuma an edge?
