ANALYSIS: Ramaphosa’s ample opportunities and not insignificant risks

One of the defining questions of the political year that is 2018 so far has revolved around the true extent of power President Cyril Ramaphosa commands right now, and whether he is consolidating his grip on the nation, and on the ANC. It is a complex question, involving determinations around both his apparent support base in the country as a whole, and his political strength within the ANC itself. No analysis, however, should exclude looking ahead, to assess the risks to his power consolidation process. And while, generally speaking, it is probably fair to say that Ramaphosa’s grip on power is increasing, there is also at least one stark risk that could lead to him being significantly weakened.
