Ramaphosa sought to convince sceptics by addressing distortions and lies propagated by detractors.

Ramaphosa highlights positives

He vehemently rejected the claim that nothing positive has occurred since 1994, countering the narrative that apartheid was preferable to the current state of affairs.

"Stating these successes is not a denial of the fact that there have not been setbacks and challenges, of course, we have had setbacks and challenges, those who do not have setbacks and challenges are those who sit on the sidelines and criticise."

The president's remarks sparked mixed reactions among South Africans, and many mentioned the outcome they wanted from the 2024 elections.
