SA's 6th parliament takes shape as MPs are sworn in

Cyril Ramaphosa has been elected as president of South Africa following the first sitting of the National Assembly.
This comes after ANC deputy president David Mabuza took the decision to postpone his swearing-in, following the integrity commission's report naming him as one of those who had possibly brought the party into disrepute.

Nomvula Mokonyane, environmental affairs minister in the last administration, was not sworn in, with the ANC confirming that she had decided to withdraw from parliament. Malusi Gigaba and former speaker Baleka Mbete withdrew their names from the ANC’s parliamentary list on Tuesday.
Political analyst Richard Calland joined Business Day TV to discuss the first sitting of the sixth parliament in more detail.
