JOHANNESBURG : South Africa's Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa on Thursday welcomed moves taken by prosecutors against companies accused of corruption and said the ruling party-

Would impose the policy certainty needed to attract the investment to the country.

He made the televised comments during a business breakfast ahead of the World Economic Forum in Davos this week.

Ramaphosa will lead the South African delegation there and said his ''sole purpose'' in going there was to ''sell the country'' as an investment destination.

Ramaphosa who was elected president of the ruling African National Congress [ANC] last month, has been signalling a departure in style and governance from the scandal-plagued administration of  President Jacob Zuma.

Zuma remains the head of the state but faces a push from within the party to step down.

''The National Prosecuting Authority [NPA] has begun to move and we welcome that. 

We welcome the actions they are beginning to take and we encourage them to act with urgency,'' Ramaphosa said.
