Respected anti-apartheid activist Mamphele Ramphele is starting a new political party to challenge South Africa’s governing ANC.

Speaking of a “failure of governance” and accusing ANC leaders of being self-interested and corrupt, Ramphele says she wants the new party “build the nation into the country of our dreams.”

The ANC, which has nearly a two-thirds majority in parliament say Ramphele is offering nothing new.
