Johannesburg - Agang SA's provincial structures on Wednesday called on its founder, Mamphela Ramphele, to discuss with them her decision to join the DA.

"That is going to be our decision, not her decision. We are the custodians of this party," Agang SA's Gauteng chair Andries Tlouamma told reporters in Johannesburg.

"There are structures in a party. There are processes to follow to arrive at certain decisions."

A decision to merge with the DA cannot be made by an individual, he said.

"This decision affects all of us in the party."

The media briefing was held by representatives of all Agang's provincial structures.

DA leader Helen Zille on Tuesday announced that Ramphele would be the DA's presidential candidate in the upcoming general elections.

"There is many unhappiness [sic] across the country by our members," said Tlouamma.

"Our leader has a responsibility to discuss with us the belief she had in the announcement she made."

He said Agang SA was giving Ramphele an opportunity to consult with them urgently.

"The consultation was not made. We are still waiting for a consultation with our leader.

"We don't believe our leader deserted us. But the decision must come from us."

Tlouamma said it respected Ramphele and appreciated her for founding Agang SA.

"She is a leader of substance, a leader of virtue."

He said the party did not want to use the word "betrayed".

"We don't know where that word came from.

"We do not feel betrayed."
