Political analyst, Professor Mcebisi Ndletyana, says Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa has not been speaking enough for the presidential campaign of the African National Congress (ANC).
He says it is not surprising that Ramaphosa has talked strongly about radical economic transformation, and against state capture and corruption.
However, Ndletyana says it is still not clear whether the Deputy President wants to win the presidency when the ruling party elects new leadership in December.
The deputy president was speaking at the Economic Recovery Engagement Dinner organised by the Black Business council on Wednesday night.

Last night Ramaphosa emphasised that economic transformation should not benefit the few.
