On Tuesday 28 January, Helen Zille announced that Dr Mamphela Ramphele would leave her party, Agang, and be the new presidential candidate for the Democratic Alliance. Five days later, on Sunday 2 February it was announced that Ramphele had reneged on their agreement. It was in those five days that DA supporters learned they had absolutely no idea how to pronounce their new leader’s name. This video footage was recorded on Saturday 1 February at the Up The Creek Music Festival outside of Cape Town.
