Mamphela Ramphele's party political platform, Agang, is embroiled in trademark fiasco with an NGO.
After months of consulting and recruiting, Agang, South Africa&39;s latest addition to the political landscape, is launching today.
The party&39;s leader, Mamphela Ramphele, announced the formation of the political platform four months ago.
She has spent months visiting communities around the country, as part of the party’s consultation period.
Ramphele is a former U-C-T vice chancellor and World Bank executive.
Agang says it&39;ll prioritise health, safety and security, the economy, and fighting public sector corruption.
Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu yesterday welcomed the party’s addition to South Africa’s political landscape.
