statement by the Interim National Management Committee

At a scheduled INMC meeting of the UDM on 3 and 4 April 1998, a decision was taken to terminate the membership of Paulo Andrade and Joel Mafenya with immediate effect. The INMC found it necessary to take this step on the grounds that their conduct have been judged improper, unbecoming and have adversely effect the interest and reputation of the UDM.

Andrade and Mafenya will have 10 days, until noon on 14 April 1998, to make use of their right to access to further adjudication according to clause 5.4(b) of the interim constitution of the UDM.
