Speaking exclusively to the SABC on his first 100 days serving as President, Ramaphosa also acknowledged that although the country faces many challenges there are positive change.

Ramaphosa was inaugurated on January the 15th following his election as ANC president during the party’s elective conference in December last year.
He took over from former president Jacob Zuma who was under severe pressure to resign from opposition parties and civil society for violating the Constitution.
“There are investigations on State Capture,” he said, emphasising that a commission has already been established to investigate the matter.
