press release

Today, the Sunday Times speculates that our leader is on the Democratic Alliance list of candidates for the election. Ignore this speculation.

In the run up to the election you will read all sorts of suggestions in the media, and there will be rumours everywhere. Do not read any truth into them.

The only truth is what we communicate directly to you.

We make no secret of the fact that we talk to other parties in South Africa. We make no secret of the fact that all parties and citizens need to stand together against the ANC and those who want to use our resources to fund their own egos and lifestyles.

The real story the media must continue to look at is ANC corruption, decaying education standards, their empty promises of jobs, the violence against citizens that we see everywhere, from Marikana to Madibeng, and the lives of our children that have been brutally and unnecessarily lost.

Agang SA was founded on the vision of restoring the dream of our early democracy; it is a vision we are committed to make a reality. That is what Agang SA has always represented, and it is what we continue to fight for.

There is an extra-ordinary window of opportunity that has opened since Madiba's passing and the fracturing of the Tripartite Alliance. We will continue to inspire citizens to put the country first in their choice of leadership and collaboration opportunities.
