Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa addressed the Chris Hani memorial lecture in Uitenhage in Port Elizabeth on Sunday. Talk Radio 702's Azania Mosaka asked listeners if this was the launch of Ramaphosa's "CR17" presidential campaign.
This what the listeners had to say.
It is very encouraging to see Ramaphosa coming out, not even reading from a prepared speech. And you can actually tell that the Eastern Cape leadership told him to be frank.— Lucas, caller
I'm worried about people who are punting Sisulu, who are punting Ramaphosa but leaving out Zweli Mkhize and David Mabuza in Mpumalanga, who is clearly going to be a serious factor in this whole thing.— Thato, Caller
He said everything that is current, he never insulted anyone. It is unfortunate that other people in the ANC take offence when they are criticised.— Robinson, caller
