Cyril Ramaphosa Succeeds Zuma As South African President

Cyril Ramaphosa has become South Africa's president a day after embattled leader Jacob Zuma resigned.

He was the only candidate nominated in parliament on Thursday so no vote was needed to make him president. MPs from the ruling African National Congress broke into song at the announcement.

In a speech to parliament Mr Ramaphosa, 65, said that corruption was on his radar.

The ANC had told Mr Zuma to step down or face a vote of no-confidence.

In a televised statement he said he was quitting with immediate effect but said he disagreed with his party's decision.

Mr Zuma faces numerous corruption allegations but denies any wrongdoing.

One opposition party, the Economic Freedom Fighters, walked out of the parliamentary debate. It wants new elections, rather than the ANC deciding on the identity of the new president.


  1. They should conduct a fresh election. He get sense not like Mugurabi that waited till he was under house arrest before he resigned.

  2. They should conduct a fresh election. Just like APC replacing Buhari with Tinubu. Well they have have their constitution to guide them, what do i know

    Chikito's fan

  3. Nigeria is next in line because young people are needed in today leadership.

  4. This can never happen in Nigeria, because, Olugbon did not resigned, Aresa did not reaigned and Orongun Ile Ila did not resigned.
