Jacob Zuma ruthlessly revenges Cyril Ramaphosa: South Africa may get a new president this month

0

JOHANNESBURG – In the aftermath of a seismic political shift that has rocked South Africa's political landscape, ANC President Cyril Ramaphosa finds himself in an unenviable position. With the ruling party's popularity dwindling and the prospect of a coalition government looming large, Ramaphosa is under intense pressure from his closest allies to forge unlikely alliances in a desperate bid to maintain the ANC's grip on power.

"It's the political equivalent of a soap opera, complete with backroom dealing, bitter rivalries, and a cast of characters that reads like a who's who of South African politics," says political analyst, Nomalanga Ndlovu. "Ramaphosa is caught between a rock and a hard place, and the choices he makes in the coming days could determine the fate of the country for years to come."

According to reports, Ramaphosa's closest party allies are pushing him to form a coalition with the Democratic Alliance (DA), as well as to explore potential alliances with former President Jacob Zuma's newly formed uMkhonto weSizwe (MK) Party and the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) led by Julius Malema.


"It's a desperate move, no doubt," Ndlovu observes. "The ANC has been the dominant political force in South Africa for three decades, and the thought of having to share power, let alone with their political adversaries, must be a bitter pill to swallow."

But the party's dwindling support, particularly in key provinces like Gauteng and Ndlovu's home province of KwaZulu-Natal, has left Ramaphosa with little choice but to explore these unlikely alliances.

"The MK Party's stunning performance in KwaZulu-Natal has been a real wake-up call for the ANC," Ndlovu explains. "Zuma's populist rhetoric and anti-establishment message have clearly resonated with voters, and the party's willingness to go it alone has thrown a wrench into Ramaphosa's plans."

Indeed, the MK Party has made it abundantly clear that it has no intention of working with the "Ramaphosa ANC," as MK spokesperson Nhlamulo Ndhlela bluntly put it. "We won't engage with the ANC of Cyril Ramaphosa," Ndhlela told reporters, adding that the party was confident it would become the official opposition.

"It's a remarkable turnaround for Zuma, who just a few years ago was facing criminal charges and even spent time in jail," Ndlovu says, shaking her head in disbelief. "But he's managed to channel the anger and disillusionment of many South Africans into a populist, anti-establishment message that has clearly struck a chord."

The prospect of Zuma's MK Party potentially aligning with the EFF, another fiercely anti-ANC force, has sent shockwaves through the party's leadership. "It's like a political earthquake," Ndlovu says. "The thought of Zuma and Malema joining forces to hold the ANC's feet to the fire must be keeping Ramaphosa and his allies up at night."

As the nation waits with bated breath for the final election results, Ndlovu and her team at Celeb Gossip News are poised to dive deeper into the drama and intrigue unfolding behind the scenes.

"This is the kind of story that keeps you on the edge of your seat," Ndlovu says, her eyes gleaming with excitement. "The political stakes have never been higher, and the implications of the choices made in the coming days could reverberate for years to come. We're here to make sure our readers don't miss a single juicy detail."

In this high-stakes game of political chess, Cyril Ramaphosa must navigate treacherous waters to secure the political alliances that will determine the fate of his presidency. As the country holdsits breath, South Africans are left to ponder the potential outcomes of these coalition negotiations. Will Ramaphosa succumb to the pressure and form an unexpected alliance? Or will he choose a different path altogether? Only time will tell, but one thing is certain: the political landscape of South Africa is on the cusp of a dramatic transformation.
