Cape Town - Mamphela Ramphele is still a member and the leader of Agang SA, she insisted on Wednesday.

This comes after party members at a media briefing begged her to explain her decision to run as the Democratic Alliance’s presidential candidate.

In reports on Wednesday, it was claimed that many Agang members only found out about Ramphele’s move via her media briefing on Tuesday.

But Ramphele told eNCA that the move was “not a surprise”.

“There has always been an understanding that Agang will participate in a realignment in SA politics.”

But Gauteng chairperson Andries Tlouamma said there was much unhappiness among members across the country.

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

Ramphele said her track record as a leader and freedom fighter made her fit to be president of the country.
