JOHANNESBURG - Former Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) Member of Parliament, Sipho Mbatha, has become the latest big acquisition of the United Democratic Movement.
This comes after the UDM added more than 200 people to their roster from parties including the EFF, African National Congress (ANC), and the National Freedom Front (NFP) on Monday.
UDM leader Bantu Holomisa said the party is growing at a fast pace in KwaZulu-Natal, hence we are welcoming leaders from various political parties into the UDM fold.
''As we welcome these like-minded individuals into the fold, we remind South Africans that political emancipation does not mean we have stopped in our quest for enduring freedom,'' the UDM said in a statement.
''The UDM has for 21 years worked towards uniting South Africans from all communities in a political home for all, built on the foundation of the principles and ideals of our national Constitution. To this end, we aim to address poverty and imbalances in our society, inspired by our unifying love of our country and its people.''
