This week, we focused on the end of the marriage of the Democratic Alliance and Agang. Most of us were excited about this change in politics. However, we are now questioning Mamphela Ramphele’s credibility as a politician. We will be following the upcoming elections closely.  Watch this space!

 

In the words of Zapiro: An utter disaster for “traditional” opposition politics. On Tuesday 28 Jan 2014, Helen Zille and Mamphela Ramphele share a public platform to announce that Ramphele would be the Democratic Alliance’s presidential candidate. By Sunday, Zille accuses Ramphele for reneging on the deal. Obviously certain questions has not been answered before rushing into the announcement.
