Bantu Holomisa says the United Democratic Movement has done enough to be worthy of their fair share of votes this election. Holomisa is confident that his party will bounce back from the decline in votes they experienced after the last general elections.
The United Democratic Movement has done what they have to to prove themselves worthy of votes come the May elections, according to Bantu Holomisa.
The leader of the UDM party says that they have a feasible economic plan and have been consistent in promoting the ethics of good governance.
Holomisa says that they have not shied away from worthy battles, tackling people who are not efficient regardless of rank, including the ex-president:
"Had Jacob Zuma not left, Cyril Ramaphosa would not be president. We have played a role in saving South Africa. We called for the state capture report be implemented [and] we have proved that we have been consistent."
The UDM leader says he expects voters to take his party seriously ahead of the elections. He called for excess government officials to be removed from their positions and the resulting savings to be funneled into agriculture and investing in businesses and work opportunities in townships.
The UDM, according to Eyewitness News, is looking to local investors as opposed to the ANC who is looking over seas:
"You need to harmonise the situation at that level first, [by assuring] them the kind of lawlessness we see in the country will be addressed along with the lack of disciplines."
