Elections 2024: A government of national unity entirely dependent on Ramaphosa would be unsustainable

# Political analyst Mpumelelo Mkhabela says a government of national unity deal that entirely depends on president Cyril Ramaphosa would be unsustainable. The ANC has proposed a government of national unity, after failing to secure a majority in Parliament. In an opinion piece for News24, Mkhabela says the usual factional battles within the ANC will ensue ahead of the elective conference in 2027. He adds that this will further weaken the party and possibly make it difficult for Ramaphosa to hold the government of national unity together.
