JOHANNESBURG: Mr Ramaphosa responded to criticism levelled against his government during the State of the Nation Address debate on Thursday.

South Africa’s president, Mr Cyril Ramaphosa has shifted his administration failures to his predecessor as he claims that he is faced with a crisis that has made it difficult to deliver services to the country’s citizens.

Responding to the lawmakers in parliament during the debate, Mr Ramaphosa added that the problem he faced was the inheritance of a state that has been riddled with corruption and malfeasance.

He says the past five years of his administration have not been smooth sailing.

“We inherited a state hollowed out by corruption and maleficence and an economy in steep decline. Since then we have rebuilt the capability and restored the independence of institutions that are essential in our democracy,” said Mr Ramaphosa.

Mr Ramaphosa also called on the lawmakers to debate in a constructive manner, that seeks solutions to the country’s problems.

He said as a vibrant democracy, robust engagements are expected in parliament, but should be done in a way that does not undermine the country’s constitution. His comments come after the country’s second biggest opposition, Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), now led by former ANC Youth League leader, Mr Julius Malema, attempted to stop him from delivering the nation last week.

“We have to ask ourselves whether we are able to work together to confront the challenges of our nation united by a common purpose or will we be consumed by our differences and in doing so, surrender to the problems,” he charged.

Mr Ramaphosa said this in the absence of Mr Malema’s party who had earlier indicated that his party won’t be attending Thursday’s parliamentary sitting.

The party said Mr Ramaphosa has failed to lead South Africa in all respects.

“The reality is, Mr President, nothing is working under you, you are a man on top and doing nothing and it is very irresponsible for a man to be on top and do nothing,” Mr Malema told Mr Ramaphosa.
