Mamphela Ramphele Responds to Political Party Start-up Rumours

Conversations with My Sons and DaughtersMamphela Ramphele has released a statement responding to rumours in the press about her starting a new political party.

Ramphele said that she has “been having conversations with South Africans from all walks of life about the state of democracy in South Africa, canvassing their views about ways in which South Africans can work together to tackle our pressing social, economic and political challenges” but that this is “in line with the national dialogue” she is trying to encourage with her book, Conversations with My Sons and Daughters.

I have noted press reports speculating about my intention to form a political party.

I would like to place it on record that I have been having conversations with South Africans from all walks of life about the state of democracy in South Africa, canvassing their views about ways in which South Africans can work together to tackle our pressing social, economic and political challenges.
