Hi Prophet M, please check your inbox. Miss J
I’m hailing from the eastern cape by origin but residing in pta at the moment. I’m very much interested in your youth league structures. But now the form requires region and ward but I’m not sure which ones around centurion can I keep in touch with.
Dear Anda, I will send you an email just now, where we can chat. I am going to ask Yongama to get back to you. Regarding the form, we are working on it to make it easier to use it; so, apologies for that. Jay
Good morning I would like to join the party. However I do not have some information required on the online form. Please assist. I am based in King Williams Town (Zwelitsha)
Dear Zimkhitha, has someone contacted you? I am just quickly following up. Jana
Happy Festive season and Compliments for the New Year to The General and UDM at large.
I have been following your organization’s path through its Leader’s various interventions and positions for a while now…and I must admit that you guys are very lucky to have such a smart and visionary leader. I personally admire him a lot and would strongly wish to physically meet him one day for further strategical discussion on various sensitive levels. There is no doubt that my multi skilled and solid experience would contribute to the development of the organization should you allow me to join you guys.
I look forward to hearing from you straight in my email and see how one can offer his capacity to the organization as a member.
Dear Mr Fred, I owe you an apology for this VERY tardy response. It unfortunately escaped my notice.
Thanks for the compliments for Mr Holomisa, or General as he’s affectionately known, we will pass on the message.
Would you mind if I engaged you via email to ask some questions (such as your phone number and location), which you not necessarily like to have in the public domain?
All the best
Good evening, I am a white female living in the Cape. I am becoming more and more despondent with our politicians who appear to have their own interests ahead of the country. I am very interested in ‘changing teams’ – and I think the UDM is probably the party with the least ‘race’ wars and ‘selfish’ goals. Where can I find out more about the real UDM and what their stance is regarding the future of our country. I am looking for something comprehensive and to the point. Would like to make a decision and move on from the pathetic ‘politiicians’ we are saddled with. Also, how active are you in the Cape? Of all the parties out there I am happy to ‘sometimes’ hear the UDM taking on issues that need to be addressed! I think a lot of people are losing faith in the people in charge and maybe change begins with changing our vote to the UDM and not a new politcal party or new ANC. We need experienced, united politicians to make our country the way Nelson would have wanted it to be. Look ahead and not behind!
Thank you for the message; I think you are not the only person who feels this way! I will inbox you some comprehensive information.
Hi, Im trying to join the UDM, however your membership form requires the details of my branch, municipal district and ward. I called the CPT reception and I cant be helped; I cant even begin to imagine how many prospective members you could be losing due to this ill-conceived form – please help?
Dear Sebastian, apologies. I am going to put you into contact with the Cape Town people, so please check your inbox. We will also take a look at the website and the fields it requires. Jana
I would like to get information about a Branch in Evander Mpamalanga.
To me Mr Holomisa is still a General, like leadership I want to be a member.
Dear Victor, welcome to the club, I will inbox you as soon as I’ve established who to put you into contact with. All the best, Jana
I am a white man with an Afrikaans surname, neither of which I chose. We are thrust into this world with no choice, and I’m sure that quite a few people in the world have regretted their parents’ decision to have children. What I am trying to say is we have to play with the hand we are dealt with. My father, who was born Afrikaans, never accepted apartheid, and actually moved to Durban to become more Anglicized. Unfortunately, 9 months after one of his close physical encounters with my mother, I was thrust into the middle of apartheid. Yes, I was raised in an all-white environment, and, yes, I was taught by my teachers that blacks were inferior, but I never saw people in colour – only in character. An arsehole remains an arsehole regardless of their pigmentation. My father was a liberal. A poor liberal. Religion and race issues were not as important as putting food on the table. He taught me to treat people as they treat you. All people. We are all born the same. We are taught to hate. A lot of my peers have never been able to recognize that they were brainwashed and conditioned to treat people differently – depending on colour. Race is such a sensitive issue in South Africa. It is the lens through which a lot of South Africans filter their lives. Everyone is a racist – every colour is picking on the other colours – a total lack of harmony and common sense. We need more leaders like Bantu Holomisa. He stands for values the other leaders have abandoned: integrity, morality and equality. His promotion of public service, fairness, dialogue and intellectual debate is refreshing in our current scorched earth political climate. Happy 20th birthday UDM. You might just be the comfortable hat I have been searching for – after trying on the ill-fitting IFP, ID and DA. Let’s make South Africa great again (to coin a Trumpism).
Dear Conrad, thanks for the sobering thoughts, I will pass on your comments to Mr Holomisa and thank you for the “happy birthday”, Jana
I would like to get information about a Branch in Harare,Khayelitsha.
Good Day Luyanda
Please drop your number or contact me on 073 663 7239.
It is about time that we stand together as South Africans to protect our land. We need to bring back discipline and ethics in our society. Foreigners are taking over our country and they get support from the ruling party. The whole story of the Guptas is an example that we are being compromised. The story of the foreigners operating spaza shops all over South Africa says much about our leadership. How do we progress as a country if we do not protect our land? A lot of money is being spent on luxurious life styles by the current ruling party and yet our economy continues to dip down. I wish UDM could be more visible and start campaigning because people are in need of a leader who will bring back solid leadership and discipline in our country. People are very desperate and a party such as EFF is capitalizing on that and people see it as an alternative. South African cannot continue to be ruled by the ill-disciplined and cannot continue to take engineered excuses. UDM has to be visible and it has to make that people want to hear. UDM has to start preaching glory for South Africa for people to understand because soft intellectual speech makes sense to few. Campaign, go on radios, rally’s and post blogs on the news papers. Preach the word of glory.
Its about time, we bring back power to the real leaders.
I have been watching the UDM’s MPs very closely and quite extensively.
I must say that they have revived my patriotism and they’ve inspired me for the better.
Just when we the youth of the country thought politics were only for the rich and famous, and quite frankly we thought “who cares. We don’t even know these people”!
I’ve been made to eat humble pie.
I might not be a member but I must say that the UDM is – serious competition! Keep up the good work.
Whether I become a member or not, I will always respect the decency and respect with which this party is led.
I am still “doing my homework” and so I can’t commit.
Kodwa Ndithi “HALALA UDM HALALA!!!
You are indeed a breath of fresh air in the midst of this confusion.

Dear Lebalang, good to receive feedback from you, because without that, we won’t know if we are performing good or bad. Your words are encouraging though, I will let our MPs know, as any positive feedback motivates a person even more. Please feel free to engage me on firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any particular questions. All the best, Jana
UDM is well represented in parliament, and the movement is clearly in good hands. Honourable leaders indeed, viz Holomisa, Filtane, Kwankwa. Hon Kwankwa you are such an inspiration. You one person who revived my interest in politics and joining the UDM. You are politics personified. All the members’ contribution in parliament is valuable, makes sense and obviously contributes positively to nation building. And, UDM’s website is clearly up to date. Whoever is doing this is doing a very good job. I wanna join UDM in Johannesburg, please advise. Regards,
Good day !
