Agang SA leader Mamphela Ramphele on Wednesday said that South Africa needed to avoid the “Zanufication” of the country at the 2014 general elections.

Ramphele was reacting to the recent elections in Zimbabwe, where Robert Mugabe and his Zanu-PF party clung to power.

“We need to make sure what has happened in Zimbabwe does not happen here,” Ramphele said, according to TimesLive.

“We have to work together with the Independent Electoral Commission to ensure credible elections.”

Ramphele, who was speaking at a University of Johannesburg event, added that her “young party” represented “fresh new ideas”.

“Agang will go into next year’s elections with these new ideas and policies to build a better South Africa,” she said.
