The United Democratic Movement (UDM) in KwaZulu-Natal (KZN), welcomes the KZN premier and the provincial MECs to their new roles.

We are encouraged that none of them are known for the bad odour of corruption and we advise them to maintain that status. As the premier prides himself for picking young and new blood in his executive, the KZN UDM hopes that such will bring about innovation in service delivery as, mostly, innovation is associated with the young and the new.

We call on the new KZN provincial government to attend to the following issues as priorities:

  1. Corruption-ridden municipalities.
  2. Very poor state of roads marred with dangerous potholes.
  3. Community-based farming projects, and
  4. Capital Infrastructure projects in rural areas in order to attract property developers and business.

Good luck to the new team as the KZN UDM will be at our posts as a credible and responsible political party.
