political parties and were started off. was started off with wanting to have a meeting with the leaders of all political parties so that we can try and find a way of working together and i'm heartened by some of the sentiments expressed here about working together which i will want to touch on well cyril ramaphosa will face a range of challenges including reducing unemployment building up the economy as well ultimately his performance will be judged by voters and elections set to take place next year alexia bron has more president of the republic of south africa. before becoming the new leader of south africa cyril ramaphosa was seen as the chief negotiator in the final days of jacob zuma as presidency he was elected
10:03 pm
president of the governing african national congress in december by a slim margin i'll have to work tonight his divided party he'll also have to repair the political and economic damage suffered under zuma and improve the party's image after years of allegations of corruption. so the reporter is a different kind of president to anything we've had before this is a modernist this is somebody he's a negotiator he's a reconsolidate as well but here's a man of a very clear determined purpose he has stuck with jacob zuma for how many years sitting by as zuma embarrassed the country embarrassed himself and that's. going along with what had happened in south africa has given the impression that. i don't think he is. but rahm opposer remains tainted by criticism over his involvement in the americana killings in which police shot and killed
10:04 pm
thirty four striking miners six years ago. as a board member of one of the largest mining companies in south africa at the time ram opposer was accused of being behind the government's decision to break the strike he later apologized saying he had stepped in to prevent further deaths as a politician turned businessman ram opposer enjoys the confidence of the financial sector and designer unemployment rose the currency and investor confidence weakened and the country's credit rating went down south africa's new leader has said he plans to create jobs and assist in economic growth target of three percent for this year that's more than double the rate predicted by the international monetary fund during the last election support for the a.n.c. fell to sixty two percent many hope the party of nelson mandela will be able to reverse this trained under the leadership of rahm opposer alexia brian al jazeera
10:05 pm
well let's go live now to rob matheson who's in johannesburg for us rob brown opposer says his big priority will be tackling corruption it needs to be clearly but do people believe. there's certainly hope that he's going to be able to do something about it and in the time that he spent as the leader of the a.n.c. since he was elected last year there have been some tangible evidence that he sometimes will have and says that he's been able to point to that he is making at least some effort to deal with the corruption that is has been endemic in south african politics really for so long but the interesting thing is that people really are as i say wishing that this is going to be the case that he is going to be able to achieve these things but one of the phrases that we have heard regularly today is that we will wait and see that people are prepared to give him the opportunity to try to find solutions to these problems but they are aware that these problems are very very big and they're very long term and there are many of them so for one
10:06 pm
man to be able to promise to be able to solve all these problems seems slightly unrealistic and therefore people as i say are hoping that he's going to be able to find some solutions but they are waiting to see what happens next and even as he sets about trying to deal with corruption and other major issues facing him the opposition not going to give him an easy ride are they there calling already for early elections even as the a.n.c. risks losing its majority potentially in elections when they do eventually come. jonah that's absolutely right i mean it was very interesting when we heard him speak at the national assembly and he said that he was going to try to put together all the opposition parties to talk about how to take south africa forward from this point a lot of the opposition parties were making the point that the problem did not lie with them the problem they said lay within the a.n.c. itself they said that they had been warning the a.n.c.
10:07 pm
and settled on the pros for the ten years that he was jacob zuma as deputy about the allegations that were surrounding the zuma administration but nothing was being done they were putting forward suggestions for debates for votes of no confidence in each each of which was voted down by the a n c so they're going to be watching very very carefully to see whether or not several ramaphosa is intending to be as transparent as he says he's going to be and it is very clear that over the next coming months certainly in the run up to those elections that we're talking about they're coming in twenty nineteen his every move is going to be scrutinized very very carefully not least just very quickly by the f.-f. the economic freedom fighters who walked out of the ceremony earlier on today they were very against jacob zuma and now it looks as though they're going to be holding

several ramaphosa to account as well. as in love for us and jobs but thanks will. now the saudi owned television news station hour obeah has surrendered its right to broadcast in the united kingdom amid allegations of fake news broadcast about qatar it comes after a qatari complained to the u.k. television regulator of calm over the broadcasting of fake quotes attributed to the emir of qatar last may both a beer and sky news arabia analyzed and condemned a speech published online which later turned out to have been faked by hackers shortly afterwards the g.c.c. began its blockade of qatar let's take a look back at how the crisis evolved last may the count on news agency was hacked that fake remarks attributed to shake bin tunney were published in which he appeared to criticize us foreign policy saudi arabia egypt and the u.a.e.
10:09 pm
responded by blocking sites belonging to qatar including al-jazeera a month later the e-mail account of the last of the two the us was hacked revealing links with a pro israel think tank in washington he was also found to be urging the u.s. to move its military base out of qatar well two days after that bahrain the u.a.e. saudi arabia and egypt imposed a blockade on qatar until it agreed to stop sponsoring terrorism groups they also demanded the closure of the al-jazeera media network qatar said it was the victim of incitement and lies last july qatar amended its antiterrorism laws and signed an accord with the united states to curb terrorism financing the us secretary of state rex tillerson praised qatar's efforts and called on the boycotting countries to lift the blockade t.v. compliance consultant liz munroe described what the decision might mean for. well it basically means that you will no longer be regulated by your own you won't
10:10 pm
be broadcasting in the u.k. and europe and. you know you'll no longer subject to their regulations but it also means that you won't be able to you know you miss out on a chunk of the audience that you're off to which is the reason why you got a license in the first place i would imagine that it wanted to. you know get access to some of our o. diaspora and they won't be able to do that unless of course they reapply for a license at some point. now the gunman accused of killing seventeen people in a school shooting in florida on wednesday has appeared in court nineteen year old nicholas cruz who can be seen on the top right in the orange jumpsuit was
10:11 pm
a former pupil of the marjorie stoneman douglas high school in part land the judge has ordered cruz to be held in jail without bond he's believed to have acted alone when he went into the school armed with a rifle and opened fire on students and teachers president trump says he will work to improve school safety but he avoided any comment on gun laws we are committed to working with state and local leaders to help secure our schools and tackle the difficult issue of mental health later this month i will be meeting with the nation's governors and attorney generals we're making our schools and our children safer will be our top priority. gallagher joins me now from parkland florida and the. a number of warnings have been there about nicholas cruz which will now come under heavy scrutiny warnings that were issued to the f.b.i.
10:12 pm
in two thousand and seventeen also warnings emanating from the school itself that had banned him from its premises if he was wearing a backpack people presumably now will be are skiing could this have been avoided. well it's a question you could ask for this scenario general but it's also a question you could ask for almost every other mass school shooting or every other mass shooting in this country because so often these acts are carried out by individuals who clearly have mental health problems who clearly show early signs of being going to obsessed or even say outright on social media i'm going to go shoot up my school so this is not an isolated case the warnings here were there the teachers at the school were afraid of this individual and there's even one report that the reason he was banned from wearing a backpack is because he brought bullets to the school inside one so the warnings were there the f.b.i. even investigated one comment made on you tube last year as you were talking about
10:13 pm
they said that investigation drew a blank but the real truth is here is that the second amendment the right to bear arms is so strong that even the f.b.i. in many ways have their hands tied if you remember the polls nightclub shooting just last year in which forty nine people died the individual carried out that attack how to actually been investigated by the f.b.i. for six months but was still allowed to buy automatic weapons and extended magazines and all the rest of it so president jumps at talk of improving mental health is a good thing but the fact that he didn't talk about gun control is making plenty of people very angry but what do people make of that because it's one thing of course going in and looking at school safety measures and trying to isolate the troubled individuals the individuals who might be liable to take dramatic action but it would be a far more definitive safety action to tackle gun. it
10:14 pm
is the question of the day what you have to remember here is it already law in this country that schools have certain security measures in place this is not new this came up to colombine shooting in which there are electric doors put in place the children have to carry out drills along with the teaches that's already in place i don't see how you can improve that unless you start arming school teachers which is something the national rifle association has suggested in the past the simple fact is that the republicans will not and probably never will talk about gun control they take millions upon millions of dollars from the national rifle association to the tune of something like fifty million dollars it is not in their political interest to talk about this but there is a growing feeling in this country every time school shootings or mass shootings like this happen is that we have to sit down in a room and for the good of the nation and for the safety of its people actually talk about this i have to tell you that is extremely unlikely to happen to go live for us there in florida thanks. still to come on al-jazeera
