A revised and extended edition of Cyril Ramaphosa: The Road to Presidential Power by Anthony Butler is out soon from Jacana Media. President Cyril Ramaphosa is South Africas fifth post-apartheid president.

He first came to prominence in the 1980s as the founder of the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM). When Nelson Mandela was released from prison in February 1990, Ramaphosa was at the head of the reception committee that greeted him. Chosen as Secretary-General of the African National Congress in 1991, Ramaphosa led the ANCs team to negotiate the countrys post-apartheid constitution.

Thwarted in his ambition to succeed Mandela, he exchanged political leadership for commerce, ultimately becoming one of the countrys wealthiest businessmen, a breeder of exotic cattle and a philanthropist. This fully revised and extended edition charts Ramaphosas early life and education, and his career in trade unionism, politics and constitution-building.

Extensive new chapters explore his contribution to the National Planning Commission, the effects of the Marikana massacre on his political prospects and the real story behind his rise to the deputy presidency of the country in 2014. They set out the constraints Ramaphosa faced as Jacob Zumas deputy, and explain how he ultimately triumphed in the election of the ANCs new president in 2017. The book concludes with an analysis of the challenges Ramaphosa faces as the countrys fifth post-apartheid president. This commanding biography tells the full story of this enigmatic leaders life and political career for the first time. It is based on numerous personal conversations with Ramaphosa over the past decade, and on rich interviews with many of the subjects friends and contemporaries.
