Agang Eastern Cape supports Ramphele
Eastern Cape branch spokesperson Philip Machanick said he's confident Ramphele didn’t do anything wrong.
JOHANNESBURG - Agang SA in the Eastern Cape distanced itself from calls by some party members for leader Mamphela Ramphele to step down.
The party's Gauteng branch convened a special meeting at the weekend and tabled a motion of no confidence against the academic and businesswoman.
It emerged last week the party's chairperson Mike Tshishonga and Ramphele both opened separate fraud cases over a bank account.
It's alleged the account was set up so the party could receive a R200,000 refund from the Independent Electoral Commission.
Agang's Eastern Cape branch spokesperson Philip Machanick said he's confident Ramphele didn't do anything wrong.
"To interdict the president is without foundation. They took this to court and made fools out of themselves and the Eastern Cape backs her 100 percent."
Meanwhile, Yesterday Ramphele was given 48 hours to resign pending the probe.
