Ramaphosa Moment of Truth as South African Vote Count Starts

South Africa started counting votes after an election that puts President Cyril Ramaphosa’s tenuous grip over his party to the test and hopes of reviving a flagging economy at stake.

While opinion polls all point to a sixth outright national election win for the African National Congress, the margin of victory will be crucial for Ramaphosa after he scraped through a party leadership vote in December 2017. With about 8% of ballots counted by 5:58 a.m. in Pretoria on Thursday, the ANC had secured 53%. The final outcome is only expected on May 11.

What moment of truth... There is fsck all truth to this crap about a ramaphosa mandate and being fired or not based on voting percentages.
Self fulfilling prophecy. The media and analysts are making too much of this election about him.

~62% voter turnout shows that people are fed up with the ANC's empty promises. Cant understand why then they did not then vote for change.

Because people are idiots and too focused on race and emotion, instead of looking at results!

voter turnout has nothing to do with people being fedup with the ruling party. If people were truly fedup it would show in the polls, which it currently does not.

I think people are fedup but they are just too uneducated/indoctrinated/pressured to do anything about it. In short. They are idiots.

With a decidedly uneducated electorate like ours it is a very big indicator of people being fed up with the anc... People will choose not voting for the anc over voting for any other party...
