New President, New Hopes

World renowned American newspaper and online media company the New York Times recently asked South Africans what they hope to see from the new President, Cyril Ramaphosa who very recently assumed office, voted and sworn in by Parliament.

Read the collection of thoughts by South Africans on the leadership of the new President in ‘A President I Can Be Proud of’: South Africans Express Their Hopes compiled by Iliana Magra.

President Cyril Ramaphosa was sworn into office unopposed in February after scandal prone Jacob Zuma conceded to the African National Congress’ (ANC’s) request to resign as President. South Africans in all nine provinces and investors breathed a collective sigh of relief at the news of his resignation.

For Cyril Ramaphosa as President of the Republic and as leader of the ruling ANC, challenges are sure to manifest, but South Africans are hopeful he will right the wrongs of Former President Jacob Zuma and put an end to all manner of state capture.
