Cyril Ramaphosa Career

Among other positions, he was an executive chairman of Shanduka Group, a company he founded. Shanduka Group has investments in the resources sector, energy sector, real estate, banking, insurance, and telecoms (SEACOM). He was also a chairman of Bidvest, and MTN. His other non-executive directorships include Macsteel Holdings, Alexander Forbes and Standard Bank. In March 2007, he was appointed non-executive joint chairman of Mondi, a leading international paper and packaging group, when the company demerged from Anglo American plc. In July 2013, he retired from the board of SABMiller plc.

He is one of South Africa's richest men, with an estimated wealth of R6.4 billion ($450 million).

In 2011, Ramaphosa paid for a 20-year master franchise agreement to run 145 McDonald's restaurants in South Africa. Shortly after the 2014 general election, Ramaphosa announced that he was going to disinvest from Shanduka to fulfil his new responsibilities as deputy president without the possibility of conflict of interest. McDonald's South Africa announced that there would be a process underway to replace Ramaphosa as the current development licensee of the fast-food chain operation in South Africa.

In 2014, after Ramaphosa became Deputy President of South Africa, the Register of Members' Interests, tabled in Parliament, revealed his wealth. Over and above the more than R76 million he had accumulated in the company shares, the documents showed that he owned 30 properties in Johannesburg and two apartments in Cape Town. The register also confirmed Ramaphosa's resignation from his directorship at Lonmin, for which he had been criticised over the Marikana massacre in 2012.

During a visit to Uganda in 2004, Ramaphosa became interested in the Ankole cattle breed. Because of inadequate disease control measures in Uganda, the South African government denied him permission to import any of the breed. Instead, Ramaphosa purchased 43 cows from Ugandan president Yoweri Museveni and shipped them to Kenya. There the cows were artificially inseminated, the embryos removed and shipped to South Africa, there transferred to cows and then quarantined for two months. As of August 2017, Ramaphosa had 100 Ankole breeding cows at his Ntaba Nyoni farm in Mpumalanga.

In 2017, Ramaphosa co-wrote a book on the breed, Cattle of the Ages, Stories, and Portraits of the Ankole Cattle of Southern Africa.

Troops mock female CO struggling in the saddle for ceremony amid dissent in the ranks 

www.dailymail.co.uk, January 24, 2023
Troopers in King Charles's mounted ceremonial battery have circulated a humiliating video of their commander failing to mount her charger. The footage shows Major Francesca Sykes of King's Troop, Royal Horse Artillery, needing two soldiers to help her into the saddle before a ceremony in Green Park near ~ Buckingham Palace. One holds the reins while another tries to push her on to the horse. The pair's efforts fail however, to the annoyance of the assembled troops. An apparent falling-out with members of the unit has led to them trying to expose what they regard as her shortcomings as a rider.

Fury as 'neutral' South Africa announces 'immoral' joint wargames with Russia and China

www.dailymail.co.uk, January 19, 2023
After months of placating Russia's butchery in Ukraine, Cyril Ramaphosa has ditched his supposed 'neutrality' to the war by hosting the naval drills off the country's east coast near Durban and Richards Bay from February 17 to 27. The move is the strongest indication yet of the strengthening relationship between South Africa, whose governing ANC party is allegedly in the pocket of a sanctioned Moscow oligarch, and the anti-West authoritarian regimes of China and Russia. The 'multinational maritime exercise' has been slammed by South Africa's leading Daily Maverick newspaper as 'immoral, stupid and impractical'.

The men were filmed allegedly assaulting the teenagers as they tried to use the pool at the Maselspoort resort in the Free State province on Christmas Day. The trio appeared to be trying to prevent the teenagers, aged 13 and 18, from swimming, claiming that the pool was reserved for white people. In the video, which was reportedly filmed by a relative and widely condemned on social media, the men appeared to shout at the teenagers and hit them.
