statement by Bantu Holomisa

The ANC has now, as I predicted yesterday, accused the UDM and me of all sorts of anti-democratic activities in Gauteng, and specifically Phola Park. The UDM, and Holomisa, reject these accusations in the strongest possible terms for the utter nonsense they represent.

The UDM is a political party, striving to establish and foster democracy, not to demolish it. The ANC knows this, and their present attempts at disinformation are as blatant as they are manifestations of a growing sense of panic leading to shortsighted and foolish decisions.

I am still awaiting an answer on my letter to President Mandela. The recent accusations by ANC members, have established an even greater urgency to the letter and the need for a satisfying response.
