Can South Africa's Ramaphosa Tighten Cadre Deployment Measures?

This comes as the South African President pledged to end deployment of poorly qualified affiliates in key state posts while wanting the African Naitonal Congress to scrutinise the résumés of councillors and hold those who are failing to account.
