Former Western Cape ANC chairperson, Marius Fransman, says he has not joined the new political party, African Transformation Movement (ATM).
Fransman was attending an ATM meeting in Cape Town, where the project manager of the party, former government spokesperson Mzwanele Manyi, addressed community leaders from Elsiesriver.
In 2011, Manyi came under fire while he was Director General of Labour, when he said there is an over supply of coloured people in the Western Cape and they should spread to the rest of South Africa.
Fransman says it’s a fact that coloured people have been the most negatively affected by Employment Equity. He says while he has not joined the political party, he is advising communities to look at alternatives.
Fransman was ousted from the ANC in 2017 for bringing the party into disrepute following accusations of sexual misconduct in 2016. He is now facing criminal charges.
