Businessman Mzwanele Manyi has finally made an official announcement of his new political party named African Transformation Movement (ATM) which he recently formed after losing a bid to continue with broadcasting on DSTV with his channel be bought from the Guptas.
Manyi is well-known to be a close friend of the former president Jacob Zuma and he has been linked with the controversial Gupta family several times. Manyi said that his main focus is to change the lives of South Africans and ensure that they get adequate share of benefits in the country’s economy.
“We are the African Transformation Movement and the aim is to transform the lives of South Africans and ensure that they get what they deserve as citizens of the country,” Manyi said. The party has not revealed any familiar politicians as new members amid the allegations that the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) Deputy President Floyd Shivambu will be also among those in the leadership of the party.
