After Zuma in South Africa

After Zuma in South Africa

President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated Cyril Ramaphosa on his election as the President of the Republic of South Africa.

He ascended to the presidency after former President Jacob Zuma was recalled by the African National Congress.

Police have already arrested eight people in a probe of a dairy project in which state funds earmarked for local farmers allegedly were siphoned off to a company tied to the Gupta family, which denies any wrongdoing.

"A key dimension that must be addressed is the overall functionality of the education system so that all children particularly those from poor households get a good quality education that they deserve", said Osman.

The South African currency, the rand, has strengthened against the dollar since Ramaphosa's ascent, but the new president faces the long-term problem of sluggish economic growth and unemployment of over 25 percent.

The economy slipped into recession past year for the first time since 2009 and has also declined in indices that measure corruption and the ease of doing business.

Financial markets have rallied since Ramaphosa took over from Zuma as ANC leader in December, as investors warmed to his pledges to straighten out the country's struggling state-owned enterprises and woo overseas investment.

Ramaphosa recently commented at the World Economic Forum in Davos, that South Africa had "excess power right now and we have no money to go for major nuclear plant building".

"Ramaphosa must give a clear policy direction on how to uplift the economy and create more jobs".

Meanwhile, trade union federation Cosatu has called on Cyril Ramaphosa to cut SA's "bloated" cabinet in half.

He said the cabinet must be resized, with only a few ministers retained.

It did not specifically name any ministers.

"South Africa needs a clear plan to clean up Eskom, SAA, SABC, Denel and SASSA".

"The leadership change creates an opportunity for South Africa to return to its position as a democratic leader both in the region and globally, reversing its recent disengagement with the global community on issues of human rights, democracy and governance", Temin said. "This must definitely not include privatisation".
