Ramaphosa, in my view, is surrounded by sharks: Karima Brown

The newly elected top six in the African National Congress are split down the middle.

This makes things difficult for ANC President Cyril Ramaphosa, says Karima Brown.

Brown says that Ramphosa's actions now will show us what to expect.

He's got a couple of very quick decisions to make. He's got a couple of opportunities to show us his intent and whether he can stamp his authority on this organisation.

Brown says we must not underplay the significance of Ramaphosa being elected, given that the Zuma camp believed that he was a project and a creation of the CIA and Western imperialism.

Because of this charged atmosphere, Brown says when Ramaphosa closes the conference, he will have to give us an intention of his intent.

It is no wonder that the deputy president spilled a tear or two when he was in face elected, because it was almost impossible to get him elected in that atmosohere.

He is in a position of power, but surrounded, in my view, by a couple of big, very dangerous sharks.
