Cyril Ramaphosa is SA’s new President

Cyril Ramaphosa has been announced as embattled Jacob Zuma's replacement, following the resignation of the latter as president on Wednesday.
Mr. Ramaphosa was the only candidate nominated in parliament on Thursday, who welcomed the development with jubilation.
The ANC had told Mr Zuma to step down or face a vote of no-confidence.
Ramaphosa has been at odds with Zuma, for a while and their rift was heightened after the former was elected as ANC’s new leader.  
The ex businessman, trade unionist and anti-apartheid activist becomes the fifth president of post-Apartheid South Africa.

Until he became the ANC party leader, has been the Deputy President of South Africa since 2014. He was elected as head of the ruling party at its National Conference in Nasrec, South of Johannesburg in December 2017.
