[LISTEN] Ramaphosa is the kind of combination we need - Phathekile Holomisa

Holomisa at down with Stephen Grootes to talk about the conference and his thoughts on the top six.

Those who believe they are representing the poor are represented and those who believe that they represent business, and therefore the economy will be in a position to grow, are also represented so everybody should be happy.

Cyril Ramaphosa is an urbanite of course, but at the same time, he is in touch with the working class. He is the kind of combination that we need. The one who understands the concerns of the business community while at the same time understands the aspirations of those who are yet to enjoy the fruits of freedom.
