JOHANNESBURG - The interests of South Africans must come before the interests of a single individual, Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa said on CNN when asked about the departure of President Jacob Zuma.

In an interview with Christiane Amanpour on Thursday night, Ramaphosa said South Africa was in a transitional period.

Amanpour asked Ramaphosa whether he, an ANC insider, was the right person to turn the government and the country around.

On matters further from home, Ramaphosa said US President Donald Trump should show Africa respect.

Ramaphosa -- elected as Zuma&39;s successor as president of the ANC in December -- spent the past few days selling the country and its investment opportunities to world and business leaders at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
