Speaking at an event for young professionals in KZN last night, President Cyril Ramaphosa had described his dismay at the state of the ruling party in the country.

Ramaphosa said that before the NASREC conference where he had been elected as president of the ANC, things had been looking grim for the African National Congress.

"Over the past few years, we entered a period of drift, we entered a period where we were not focusing on the key issues that we needed to focus on and we were diverted by a whole number of things and we lost our way."

The president took the opportunity to reassure the young professionals that the government will be taking decisive action against those who are implicated in state capture.
