Head of the school of governance at Wits University, Professor David Everatt, says President Cyril Ramaphosa’s response to the crisis in the North West shows that he is willing to listen to the people.
The past couple of weeks has seen violent protests in the North West where residents demanded the removal of Premier Supra Mahumapelo.
Speaking on Morning Live, Evaratt says though Ramaphosa listens, he has shown that he is not willing to do anything rash or sudden when a demand is made on him.
Evaratt says: “If there is one thing we know about Ramaphosa is that he will make a move when he is ready and often he will do nothing.”
He says the President seems to be in control and wants to do things by the book.
“The President wants to use the correct mechanisms in dealing with the so called corrupt people,” says Evaratt.
Wednesday night, the African National Congress(ANC) National Working Committee met in the Western Cape.
The party would not confirm the agenda but some of the most pressing issues include a call for the removal of Mahumapelo.
