It was all a neat little arrangement. Businessman Cyril Ramaphosa would return from the political wilderness and help the Zuma slate at the ANC’s Mangaung conference to a landslide victory. In exchange Ramaphosa would get what he always wanted: a no-contest ticket to the presidency. The first part worked like a charm. Unfortunately for Ramaphosa, though, he has no guarantee that he will be the next Number One. And there’s not very much he can do if the current Number One and his supporters change their minds about the deal. By RANJENI MUNUSAMY.
