Racial composition of Ramaphosa’s campaign team not a problem

Racial composition of Ramaphosa’s campaign management team should be a problem, this is according to Theo Venter, a political analyst at North West University. He was speaking following the Sunday Times report that Ramaphosa’s campaign management team responsible for finances and fundraising are white.

“I think if you have to judge your fundraisers according to race, President Jacob Zuma’s camp has as many problems. Look where Zuma, Supra Mahumapelo (North West Premier) and Free State Premier Ace Magashule’s money comes from. The Guptas fall in a different race category.

“The sponsors in the Zuma campaign have just as much exposure to racial issues as the Ramaphosa campaign For me there is a logical explanation as to why the Ramaphosa campaign is getting support from the business community.

“If I have to consider it ideologically within the ANC’s policy of non-racism, there shouldn’t be a problem. The campaign will sort itself out in the long term. However, I think one has to be careful, especially seen in terms of the ‘white monopoly capital’ narrative,” Theo Venter told Netwerk24.
