MDC Deputy President, Tendai Biti, says they expect Ramaphosa's team to be transparent.

This as outrage grows at the crackdown on critical voices in that country.

"We now look forward to the agenda and the mandate of the team that he (Ramaphosa) has appointed. The details have not been flashed out to us," said Biti.
