South Africa: Cyril Ramaphosa, Jacob Zuma, and Ace Magashule From 30,000 Feet

The African National Congress (ANC), the party which has dominated government since the end of apartheid in 1994, is a mélange of democratic and "liberation" assumptions and procedures. Once multiracial, the ANC is now largely a Black political party. During the 2009–2018 presidency of Jacob Zuma, it became deeply ensnarled in corruption and steadily lost the support of the electorate. Zuma is widely regarded as personally corrupt. Cyril Ramaphosa, a close associate of Nelson Mandela, campaigned within the party to unseat Zuma and clean up the corruption, not least to stimulate foreign and domestic investment in the economy.

South African President Cyril Ramaphosa and former President Jacob Zuma, both wearing yellow shirts with black and green stripes, cut a cake together. Several others stand around them wearing shirts of the same coloring.
