South Africa President, Cyril Ramaphosa, faces isolation in the ANC after new DA leader, John Steenhuisen said the DA would go into coalition with a faction led by Cyril Ramaphosa if the ANC was to split after the 2024 elections.

The Sunday Times newspaper reports that the DA leader said he would however not go into a coalition with Deputy President, David Mabuza and Secretary General, Ace Magashule.

Steenhuisen said he believes there are reformers in the ANC. The DA is anticipating that given the infighting in the ANC, there will be an eventual split that will allow those who share common values to come together.

The newspaper says Steenhuisen’ s endorsement of Ramaphosa could have serious implications for Ramaphosa who is already being accused of being a proxy of white monopoly capital (WMC).
