AgangSA leader Mamphela Ramphele has confirmed that South African-born billionaire Nathan “Natie” Kirsh funded her party and would continue to do so.

In a Sunday Independent expose, it is reported that Kirsh was probably the mystery donor who prompted Ramphele’s desperate bid to join the Democratic Alliance. It has also emerged that she stayed with the Kirsh family during a recent campaign trip to the UK.

However, the merger between the two parties lasted less than a week, resulting in a nasty political and personal fallout between Ramphele and her friend of 40 years, DA leader Helen Zille.

Kirsh has confirmed that he knows both party leaders but would not comment on whether he funded the DA or AgangSA.

Zille has also kept information on DA donors secret. She has also refused to divulge information on the finer details of the failed Agang-DA merger.
