When I first heard about the “No Vote” campaign being spearheaded by ANC veterans and long-term activists, my instinctive reaction was a dismissive one – here come a bunch of out-of-touch Capetonians with yet another harebrained scheme.
ANC secretary-general Gwede Mantashe could not provide a “yes” or “no” answer when asked yesterday if the Nkandla report had dented the ANC’s image.
Most Western Cape residents turn to drugs and alcohol because their lives are humiliating, Agang SA leader Mamphela Ramphele has said.
- Talking manifestos: Agang SA
- Helen Zille will be DA’s face of elections despite Ramphele blunder
- Listen – Athol Trollip: Mamphela Ramphele had very little to offer DA
- Student to Mamphela Ramphele: ‘We are confused. What happened last week?'
- Mamphela Ramphele’s exit a blow for competitive electoral democracy
Agang SA leader Mamphela Ramphele tells Sabelo Ndlangisa that the party is realistic in its assessment of what it can achieve
There’s an untidy tendency tainting much of our public discourse over the meaning of many black revolutionary leaders.
The DA’s Eastern Cape leader, Athol Trollip, on why he voted against having Mamphela Ramphele as the party’s presidential candidate.
The DA’s Eastern Cape leader, Athol Trollip, says he voted against Mamphela Ramphele as the party’s presidential candidate because she “had very little to offer our party”.
Agang SA leader Mamphela Ramphele was cheered by students in Cape Town when she reaffirmed her commitment to the party.
The election circus in Gauteng got into a higher gear today when the provincial ANC unveiled two Tshwane councillors who had defected from the DA.
It was worrying that the DA and Agang SA merger was spurred on by an international donor, the ANC has said.
Many donors wanted the DA and Agang SA to merge to become a formidable force against the ruling ANC, DA leader Helen Zille has said.
The DA denied a report that a donor was behind the merger talks between the Democratic Alliance and Agang SA leader Mamphela Ramphele, opposition spokesman Mmusi Maimane has said.
It was a political game of mutation, marriage or mirage that went up in a swirl this week. DA leader Helen Zille and Mamphela Ramphele of Agang SA sealed a precarious union involving the latter standing as the DA’s presidential candidate for the upcoming general election.
Not many Twitter users were surprised by the failed merger of the DA and Agang SA.
Monday morning. The Gunners are still top of the log. I’m in showroom condition. I’ve had a calm weekend.
