We know what to do - Ramaphosa

Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa will be delivering a final address at the World Economic Forum which draws to a close on Friday.

EWN reporter Stephen Grootes says Ramaphosa said that "we know what to do".

He said I would like to think we know what to do.

He is really making a point that we do know what to do and we now have to move from what he calls half baked solutions...

Ramaphosa also said that we need to work on deliverables adding that when the World Economic Forum takes place again next year, people would be able to say this is what we have achieved.

Grootes says the event that took place in Davos showed a bit of 'togetherness' in team South Africa, where as now it looks like there is "teams South Africa".

But I think it is really about the reshuffle and the fact that Pravin Gordhan was well known at the World Economic Forum as the symbol of South Africa.
