President Jacob Zuma seems to feel that the extent of corruption in Africa is not as bad as what is perceived or what reports suggest, while Ramaphosa calls it a "mammoth task" to deal with South Africa.
He lost his position as leader of ANC to trade Unionist Cyril Ramaphosa who was chosen to lead the 23-year-old ANC party on December 2018.
Mr Zuma, 75, faces a number of corruption charges after nine years in power.

Cars carrying ANC leaders drew into the venue, but no official word was expected to confirm the closed-door meeting had started.
Meanwhile‚ the Congress of the People says the country has suffered immeasurable harm under Zuma's presidency and that his removal could not come sooner.
Under Zuma, the ANC won less than 54 percent of the vote in local elections in 2016 in its worst electoral performance since coming to power with Mandela at the helm in 1994.
It was in that same vast square in front of City Hall on February 11, 1990, that Nelson Mandela spoke to euphoric crowds hours after his release from prison.
He never mentioned Zuma by name, and it took him 40 minutes to raise the matter in his speech of about 50 minutes.
