Johannesburg - South Africa lacks good and efficient leadership, Agang SA leader Mamphela Ramphele said on Wednesday.

"We don't have leaders, instead we have thieves," she told Myra Maboya, who runs a health shop in Tembisa.

Ramphele was visiting the Tembisa Self Help Association of the Disabled, an NGO that houses various entrepreneurial projects.

Maboya said she had been running the Swissgarde health shop for the past 20 years.

"I brought health products to the township and this venture has been successful ever since."

Ramphele told Maboya to soldier on.

The country had talented people willing to make their mark, but bad leadership was hampering their progress, Ramphele said.
