Johannesburg - Agang SA leader Mamphela Ramphele claims to have earned the trust of communities across the country.

"People are proud that I am the only public leader who disclosed her income... that means trust," she said in Gauteng on Wednesday.

Ramphele recently revealed her net worth of over R50m to the public.

She insisted that every public representative should do the same to gain the trust of the people they led.

"I have over the years worked with communities in Limpopo, Cape Town, and many other places... people know that what they see is what they get... I have nothing to hide."

Ramphele was visiting Tembisa on Wednesday and inspected the Phomolong Clinic and an NGO housing various entrepreneurial projects.

She was expected to also visit Enhlanzeni hostel dwellers before going on a walk-about at the Swazi Inn market.
