Statement issued by Mr Bantu Holomisa, MP – UDM President

The United Democratic Movement (UDM) had started its road on the transformation of South Africa into a Winning Nation on 27 September 1997 at the then World Trade Centre in Kempton Park. The Party was born with its feet firmly in the new South Africa.

In retrospect, the UDM was ahead of its time. We were the first to bat on the wicket of good governance and we have, over the past twenty years, been steadfast in our work to hold the powers that be accountable.

The UDM’s 20th Anniversary will be hosted at Gallagher Estate (Midrand, Gauteng) on Saturday, 30 September 2017. We plan to host 2500 of our members from right across the Country in celebration of this auspicious occasion.

Aside from taking a retrospective look at the work the UDM has done to improve the lives of South Africans, we also want to talk about the exciting future of the UDM and what needs to be done to rescue the Country from a slippery slope.

For practical arrangements, please contact Ms Sipho Mawoko (UDM Media Liaison) at the UDM National Office on 012-321-0010.
