Ramphele: ANC can be defeated

Mamphela Ramphele (News24)

Hammanskraal - The African National Congress can be defeated, Agang SA leader Mamphela Ramphele said on Thursday.

"If you do not give them your votes and vote for Agang we can have a new government," she said in Temba near Hammanskraal, north of Pretoria, during her election campaign.

"It is in your hands. If you need a new government do not vote for the ANC. The ANC can be outvoted," she said to applause.

Party supporters in green T-shirts gathered inside a white tent at the Odirile Children's Centre to listen to her. The centre caters for 65 children with disabilities.

Ramphele said it was criminal that the centre received no support from the social development department.

"There is no money for this centre, but there is money to buy votes."

She said people were living in fear of the ANC-led government.

"People need a government that respects and serves them. We must put a stop to this corruption, vote the criminals out."

Only in South Africa could a president get into office while facing corruption charges, she continued.

An Agang SA-led government would build the economy and mines would use machines to be more productive.

"Agang will support people to start businesses and create jobs. There are no longer jobs in the mines and farms."
