Agang concerned about SA’s high unemployment rate

Agang SA’s President, Andries Tlouamma says his party is deeply concerned about the country’s high unemployment rate.

Touamma was speaking at the launch of Agang SA’s manifesto in Atteridgeville, west of Pretoria on Saturday.

Tlouamma has urged people to vote for Agang SA, as they are prepared to deal with unemployment in the country.

He says they want to come out with mechanisms to fight corruption in the country.

Tlouamma says as Agang SA, they are capable to tackle each and every concern from the community.

He promised to protect the South African Constitution by empowering women.

“We want to make sure that at local level, our people do participate fully in the economy of this country. We also believe that, we have not yet reached women, we have not yet reached the stage of them participating equally with men. So we want them at local level to build confidence to give them an opportunity to participate in the economy,” says Tlouamma.

The party will be contesting the forthcoming elections in five of the nine provinces.

Delegates from Mpumalanga, North West, Limpopo, Free State and Gauteng provinces were in attendance.

Supporters and members came in large numbers to hear what the manifesto entailed.

Agang was formed in 2013 by anti-apartheid activist Dr Mamphela Ramphele.
