The Council on Foreign Relations in the United States says its healthy to see South Africa emerge from a state of limbo with the election of President Cyril Ramaphosa, while praising the people of the country and the ANC for acknowledging the country’s problems and expressing themselves in light of them.

Former US Representative to SADC, former US Ambassador to Botswana and currently, a Senior Fellow on Africa at the Council on Foreign Relations, Michelle Gavin says, “I think its exciting to see a new day and new leadership for South Africa, healthy for the country not to linger in this sort of limbo state where it was clear that the transition was coming, but exactly clear how it would be executed or in what timeframe.”

She spoke to SABC correspondent Sherwin Bryce-Pease.
