You Won’t Believe Who South Africans Think Is Most Fit To Lead The Country


A lot has been in the air over who will lead the country better to bring it out of the shambles it has been plunged into by the current government.

But a polls report conducted by eNCA and market research company Ipsos says South Africans think the best leader for the country comes from one of the three powerful political parties in the country.

From the poll result, each political leader was evaluated on a scale from 0 to 10, where 0 means that the respondent is totally against the person as a political leader and 10 means they are totally in favour of this leader.

The table below gives a summery of the views of registered voters about the leaders of the three strongest political parties in the country.

Party Leader  Average Out Of 10
ANC Cyril Ramaphosa 5.7
ANC Jacob Zuma 4.9
DA Mmusi Maimane 4.5
EFF Julius Malema 3.1

From this sheet, South Africans seems to have much confidence on the leadership of Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa more than the sitting President Jacob Zuma. However, DA’d Maimane stands closely to contend with Zuma on who wins the people’s heart.

ANC and DA Rubbing Shoulders

Meanwhile, Ipsos pointed out that the scores for Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa are added, due to the important role he plays in the ANC campaign.

No doubt that the August 3 local government elections centers on the ANC and DA fighting for control of the major metros. According to the latest eNCA and Ipsos polls report, the DA and ANC will be close in Nelson Mandela Bay, Tshwane, and Johannesburg.

The two parties stand shoulder to shoulder following who wins the people’s heart and who best fits to wear the leadership cap come 2017.
