1. 01:00 - 05:00 The Best of the Cape

Cyril Ramaphosa is now the ANC president.

What does that mean for South Africa and investors?

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Galileo Capital Personal Financial Advisor Warren Ingram.

  • The vote was very close and the split between the top six probably means the new leadership is not as business friendly as investors hope.

  • Exchange rates have strengthened drastically. Should you take more money offshore?

  • Will Zuma step down or will the ANC recall him speedily? The answer has big implications for investors and ratings agencies. A quick resolution to the Zuma problem and a Cabinet reshuffle could be great for investors. The alternative could be damaging in the short term, but potentially positive in the long run.
