President Of South Africa Ramaphosa Takes The Oath Of Office For A Second Term

Following a laborious election last month, South Africa’s President Cyril Ramaphosa took the oath of office on Wednesday for a second term.

Ramaphosa was honored with a parade of honor, military fly-bys, and a 21-gun salute.

After receiving the majority of votes from lawmakers who support the African National Congress (ANC), the Democratic Alliance, and other parties supported Ramaphosa’s nomination in parliament last week, he was able to secure his post.

After the 29th May election, when rival parties including the Democratic Alliance (DA), Malema’s ally the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), and Zuma’s group, uMkhonto WeSizwe (MK), increased their numbers in the legislature, this was the first time the ANC had failed to win the majority.

As a result, Ramaphosa triumphed in Parliament over Julius Malema of the extreme left-wing Economic Freedom Fighters, a surprise nominee. In the 400-member house, Ramaphosa earned 283 votes to Malema’s 44.

South Africa has been facing severe issues, such as some of the highest rates of violent crime, inequality, and unemployment in the world.

Since the apartheid system of white minority rule ended in 1994, the ANC, the renowned party of Nelson Mandela, had controlled South Africa with a comfortable majority.
