STATEMENT ISSUED BY BANTU HOLOMISA as UDM PRESIDENT
example of shameless ANC electioneering came out yesterday in the form of a
document on moral renewal. In
recent months, the electorate has heard no small amount of government lip
service on the need to fight corruption ďat every turnĒ.
As far back as the Moral Summit in October, the ANC government decided
that social transformation could not occur without a moral regeneration and
pledged to spearhead such a movement. Predictably,
all such statements have proven to be mere hypocritical posturing.
then, ANC politicians have hindered Judge Heath at every turn, attempting to
discredit his commission and its efforts. Ministers
of the Presidential Cabinet (i.e. Zuma and Buthelezi) have refused
responsibility for the shady dealings that have occurred within their
departments. High profile ANC politicians have come out in support of
1999ís Swindler of Year, Alan Boesak, and the ANC candidates list reads like a
Golden Handshake Hall of Fame.
our government to regain any credibility with the citizens of South Africa, it
must back its pious speech with more than fruitless workshops and glossy
booklets. White-collar criminals in
our country fear only a gentle reprimand from the ANC government. These people must be brought to justice.
Theft is theft, and it demands a prison sentence.
South Africans have had enough of the ANCís insulting insincerity.
We demand action.

Acting National Secretary
