Johannesburg - A task team set up by Agang SA founder Mamphela Ramphele has developed a survey in a bid to assess the state of the party.

The party asked people to fill in the online questionnaire "in the interest of the 52 350 people who voted for Agang" in the general elections.

Respondents had until noon on Thursday to complete and submit the survey.

Agang SA said the results of the survey would be used in the task team's final report, which would be submitted to the reconstituted national executive committee (NEC) and Ramphele on Saturday.

One of the questions in the survey was: "How would you rate the political maturity of Agang SA's leadership?".

There were three possible answers - astute, average or immature.

Another question was "How do you rate Dr Mamphela Ramphele as president of Agang SA?".

Respondents had an option of replying excellent, average or poor.

The questionnaire also asked about respondents' feelings about the party's communication with its members and whether people thought it was a good idea that Ramphele had not become Agang's MP in Parliament.

The party also asked, "Do you think funders received value for their contribution to Agang SA?".

There were nine questions in the survey.

Ramphele’s exit

Last week, Ramphele announced that she was resigning as leader of the party.

She said her exit from politics was because she wanted to return to working alongside the country's citizens in civil society.

At the time acting spokesperson John McConnachie said Agang SA had been divided into two factions with the one side aligned with Ramphele and the other calling for her removal as party head.

The party's two parliamentary leaders, Mike Tshisonga and Andries Tlouamma, were part of the faction who wanted Ramphele out.

The two were served notices of expulsion by the party last week. This came after their alleged involvement in plans to oust Ramphele from the party.

In June, Ramphele and Tshisonga opened separate fraud cases with police over a bank account opened to receive a refund from the Electoral Commission of SA, believed to be around R200 000.

At the time, Tlouamma announced that Tshisonga, who is also the party chairperson, would be acting president.

Tshisonga and Tlouamma were both members of Agang SA's former NEC.

The former NEC has been replaced by a newly constituted NEC formed by a task team appointed by Ramphele after the elections.

Tshisonga and Tlouamma and the other members of their faction had rejected the legitimacy of the newly constituted NEC.
