Reading Time: 2 minutes

The United Democratic Movement (UDM) is embarking on a nationwide roadshow to prepare for the 2019 elections. The party was in Khayelitsha, outside Cape Town, working on its election strategy.


The UDM is consulting structures on the party’s manifesto and the election campaign strategy.

Party leader Bantu Holomisa has also briefed the party faithful on issues emanating from the State of the Nation Address.

Holomisa also says the party will have to interrogate the proposed policy of land expropriation without compensation.

The UDM leader says anti-corruption is a huge drawing card.


Meanwhile, the UDM’s Youth Vanguard says it’s time that South Africans started focusing on building the country and stop dwelling on former President Jacob Zuma.

The UDM’s youth wing is currently conducting a walk-about in Katlehong in Ekurhuleni on the East Rand to recruit supporters.

Gauteng Chairperson Andile Jabavu says the country should stop worrying about Zuma now that he is going to be prosecuted.

“We are bringing the party to the people, however, we need to emphasize the fact that we are no longer talking about Zuma here. We’re bringing the party to the people because Zuma is basically going to the court and be charged… We’re talking about the party, people and service that they are entitled to.”
