DAILYKENN.com -- With a net worth estimated at $450-million, Cyril Ramaphosa is among the wealthiest South Africans.
He was elected president of the African National Conference (ANC), a far-left, pan-African political monolith that embraces Marxist ideologies and anti-white racism.
As president of the ANC, he is expected to become the next president of South Africa, replacing polygamist Jacob Zuma.
The ANC has dominated South African politics since the end of apartheid in 1994. It has effectively introduced anti-white apartheid through neglecting the nation's farm murder crisis, the proliferation of white squatter camps, and anti-White programs such as Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) that requires some businesses to hire unqualified blacks over more qualified whites.

South Africa's ANC picks Cyril Ramaphosa as leader
South Africa's ruling African National Congress (ANC) has selected Cyril Ramaphosa to succeed President Jacob Zuma as the party's leader.
The country's deputy president defeated former cabinet minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, Mr Zuma's ex-wife, after a marathon voting process.
Mr Ramaphosa is in a strong position to become president in 2019 polls.
The leadership battle caused fierce political infighting, raising fears the party might split before the election.
Mr Ramaphosa defeated Ms Dlamini-Zuma by 2,440 votes to 2,261, an ANC spokesperson announced.
The result triggered celebrations among party delegates in Johannesburg and also on the streets of the city.
How the vote happened
Media reports said earlier that the announcement had been delayed, with Ms Dlamini-Zuma's camp demanding a recount.
The voting process started on Sunday.
