President Cyril Ramaphosa wants voters to come and fly with him as South Africa gets ready to take off. Ramaphosa seemed confident that, although the past few yeas have been difficult, the country has managed to come back from the brink.
Cyril Ramaphosa is doing his very best to draw votes for his party ahead of next week's election.
While attending a gathering in Lynnwood, Gauteng Ramaphosa had been asked questions on a range of issues facing South Africa including land reform and corruption.
Nevertheless, the president remains optimistic about the nation's future, telling South Africans:
“We come from a cathartic past few years, we have [come] from the brink. Please join me in this journey – we are in an aeroplane that’s on the runway and it’s about to take off. The key question is will you be a passenger on this plane? Let’s fly this SA plane!”
Ramaphosa seems confident that the ANC, despite enduring a brutal few months with allegations of corruption and scandal, will enjoy a smooth landing next week as the country goes to the ballots, reports The South African.
Briefly.co.za reported earlier that the president had suggested the ruling party had always fought for land reform as early as it's inception in 1912.
Ramaphosa appeared hopeful that the policy will bring positive change in SA, and correct the 'gross injustice' carried out in the past.
