Building South Africa
Dr. Mamphela Aletta Ramphele is a South African former activist against apartheid, a medical doctor, an academic and a successful businesswoman.
She is a former Vice-Chancellor at the University of Cape Town and a one-time Managing Director at the World Bank.
On the 22nd on June 2013, she will officially be launching the new political platform named Agang which means “Building South Africa” in Sotho.
The party is based upon five principles: empowering the people to govern, building effective public services, building a restructured economy, building a modern education and training system and restoring South Africa’s position in Africa as well as internationally.
I had the enormous privilege to meet Dr. Ramphele and take these portraits of her for her political campaign where she will be challenging the ANC for the presidency in the 2014 South African general election.
