In this episode of Digital Discourse ZA, Brett Thompson and TK Pooe break down the 2019 election results. Who were the winners and losers? Is populism on the rise? They also look ahead to what the next steps for the newly elected president will be. Will Mr Ramaphosa have the support of his party? What balances of power need to be considered when choosing the cabinet? Who will be the deputy president — and how much does it matter?
