South African political economist Moeletsi Goduka Mbeki is the vice chairman of South Africa's independent think tank, the South African Institute of International Affairs (SAIIA), and a political analyst for Nedcor Bank.
Moeletsi Mbeki spoke with Lerato Mbhele on Power FM, claiming that Ramaphosa also has some of the greatest public contacts he can imagine of, but that he has underperformed as a leader.
"Cyril isn't really a representation." He was never a bully. His demeanor and demeanor are both political and militaristic at the same time. While Nelson Mandela, Thabo Mbeki, and Jacob Zuma were statesmen in their own right, he is not. He follows the crowd's lead. Every morning, Mbeki asks what way the wind is blowing, and then he heads in that direction.
This is a selection of some of the responses from South African residents who are concerned about the situation.
Throughout his remarks, Moeletsi Mbeki has been succinct and frank in his assessment. He slammed the African National Congress, Thabo Mbeki, and Jacob Zuma in particular. The criticism he delivered was not based on generalizations or popular sentiments at any point. I'm only stating what I've observed on the ground. To say the least, I seriously doubt that Cyril is a member of the African National Congress and President of the most powerful country in Africa. As Deputy T.M.Beki, Moeletsi Mbeki will always be referred to! He hops from one BEE contract to the next, making appearances on radio and television, and criticizing people who have never heard of him.
One thing you can single out about Ramaphosa, like Mbeki, is that he is innocent of being in denial regarding HIV's existence and always in other nations. Of course, Zuma was battling for white monopoly capital, but they had their problems.
In his time as president, Thabo Mbeki left his mark. Many of us are still making a difference in the lives of others merely because we get to see him. We have faith that things will work out in the end. You, Moeletsi, are sullying your family's reputation by ignoring the right method of dealing with the situation. You don't give a second thought to what you're doing.
The South African president, Cyril Ramaphosa, is widely regarded as a great leader, but does Moeletsi Mbeki really believe that? Please share your thoughts in the comments below.
