- A recent survey has revealed that South Africa is happy with Ramaphosa as President
- A survey conducted has shown that 65% of South Africans are happy with Ramaphosa
- The survey indicated that Ramaphosa’s support has grown steadily since February
It’s not difficult to understand that cynicism in the South African government has been at an all-time high following controversies surrounding former President Jacob Zuma, but another, more positive high is the confidence in current President, Cyril Ramaphosa.
The South African Citizen’s survey, conducted on a monthly basis, has showed an increase in confidence towards the Ramaphosa leadership. In fact, the numbers for Ramaphosa have been rising since February and have gone from 29% to a rosy 65%.
The numbers reflect confidence in Ramaphosa
The Province leading the numbers is Limpopo, where 75% of people in the survey responded favourably to Ramaphosa’s leadership. They were followed by Free State (69%), North West (67%) and Eastern Cape and Gauteng (65%).

In this article, we reported on Ramaphosa’s first day as South Afrian President and how he hit the ground running with an early morning run at the Sea Point promenade in Cape Town. Fellow joggers, including former Minister Trevor Manuel, posed for photos with him.
Opposition confidence is also climbing
The survey also indicated an increase in opposition party leaders, Musi Maimane and Julius Malema. They support has increased to 32% and 27% respectively.
After the turmoil we have faced as a country, and the negativity that has circled our shores, it’s good to see confidence and positivity starting to rise again.
