SHOW OF SOLIDARITY – UDM Chief Whip to spend a night at the KZN Camps

Statement issued by UDM Chief Whip Nqabayomzi Kwankwa, MP Over the past few weeks, South Africa has been engulfed by a humongous wave of xenophobic violence. This has caused untold damage to the image of our country in the African Continent and the world at large. It has, however, been heart-warming and encouraging to see South Africans of all races taking a firm stand in the fight against xenophobia. All the various campaigns have contributed [...]

The result will be productive and safe environments that will improve the quality of life of the people and communities of South Africa through rapid and extensive economic and social infrastructure development focussed on uplifting marginalised communities.

UDM Integration Approach (policy)

Foreword On September 27, 1997, the United Democratic Movement was officially launched.  Since that time, we have travelled across South Africa – giving speeches, holding rallies, and most importantly, meeting with thousands of South Africans, from the rural villages of Mpumalanga to the boardrooms of Gauteng.  We have spent countless hours listening to their daily concerns and discussing their aspirations for the future – for themselves, for their families, and for South Africa.  During those [...]

Economic Policy Position

1.       Why the new South Africa needs a new economic plan The South African economy fails to deliver what is expected of it. It is acknowledged that certain fundamentals are in place, but it is equally true that the urgently required jobs and economic growth are not materialising.

The United Democratic Movement (UDM) is of the view that “go-betweens” are not the way to go. As former members of the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) - still smarting from the loss of NUM’s status as [...]
