Bonang Mohale, CEO at Business Leadership South Africa, says that while they congratulated the ANC on their choice of leadership, it is not an indication that the BLSA is fully backing Ramaphosa.

He says as Business Leadership South Africa it has invested interest in politics and is ready to work with government, but it is not part of it.

We are not throwing our weight behind Ramaphosa as business. As business, we are here to work with this government because we want to be a trusted adviser and partner of choice. We want to do everything possible to ensure we are being led by a capable state.

Bonang Mohale,CEO at Business Leadership South Africa

Mohale says as business they will consult with all parties, but they have nothing to do with the political parties be it the ANC , DA or EFF. Rather they are concerned with government because they submit to government.

We love this country. Business believed in this country. We are heavily invested in this country. We want a functioning democracy, where people don't bribe, steal or cheat.

Bonang Mohale,CEO at Business Leadership South Africa

Mohale adds it is now the task of the new leadership to tackle the issues facing the country such as unemployment and rooting out corruption.

We want to call upon the new leadership to focus on the urgent task of addressing transformation, job and growth.
