While he couldn't quote precise figures, he claims that the party's size is in excess of a million members.

Mzwanele Manyi says his new political home, the African Transformation Movement (ATM) is bigger than the ANC in membership numbers.

While he couldn't quote precise figures, he claims that the party's size is in excess of a million members.

ATM does not belong in the category of small parties. It is a big organisation that has been silently mushrooming.

At a membership level, ATM is actually bigger than the ANC... We are growing by the minute.

Manyi argues that there has been a lack of media coverage of the movement since it was established last year.

We will pull more supporters than the ANC.

The ATM is not gunning to be a 2% or 3% opposition, no. We are gunning for the throne - to be a government of this country.

He says the member-funded party is transparent and able to maintain its independence because it has no external funding.

Manyi says he would be open to allow the media to inspect the financial flows of the ATM, only if other parties are probed as well.

ATM is founded on the principles of humanity and good governance and does not believe in racial division, he adds.

He answered questions about his stance on race, relationship with the Gupta family, former president Jacob Zuma and more.
