JUSTICE MALALA: Make no mistake, we are in a far better place with Zuma gone

It has been five months since Cyril Ramaphosa became ANC president at the party’s conference in December 2017. It has been just more than 100 days since he was sworn in as president of the republic in February.
As his 100 days in office have come around, reams of newsprint and verbiage have been produced about how well – or badly – he has done. Many have condemned Ramaphosa as weak, as indecisive, as a leader destined for annihilation by his own party. The plethora of positive actions he has taken, as opposed to the daily diet of thievery that preceded him, is dismissed as just not good enough.
