Agang SA

Agang SA

Agang SA was formally launched as a political party on June 22, 2013, in Pretoria. Respected academic and struggle veteran Dr Mamphela Ramphele announced her intentions to form her own “political party platform” earlier in February 2013.

Agang SA’s main objective was to tackle ongoing corruption problems in the country.

Despite the fanfare at the time, no big names were announced at the 2013 launch. However, Professor Barney Pityana confirmed that he would join the party back then.

At an infamous media briefing held on 28 January 2014, former Democratic Alliance leader Helen Zille revealed that Agang SA’s Dr Ramphele Mamphela was to be the DA’s presidential candidate going into the 2014 general elections.

But on 3 February 2014, South African media reported that Mamphela had “reneged” on her agreement with the DA, choosing not to stand as the DA’s presidential candidate but would be going it alone with her Agang SA party.

Agang SA launched its manifesto for the 2014 elections on 8 March at the Saulsville Arena in Atteridgeville, outside Pretoria.

Once the results for the 2014 polls came in, the party barely won electoral support, registering only 0.28% or two seats in the National Assembly.

The 2016 Local Government Elections was the party’s first local poll where it received 5 493 votes (0.01%). In the 2019 general elections, it secured 2 seats in the National Assembly with 13 856 votes (0.08%).
