UNITED DEMOCRATIC MOVEMENT

MEDIA RELEASE


MONEY IS OWED BY XOLANI MBUTHO TO A TRAVEL AGENT

MEDIA STATEMENT BY  BANTU HOLOMISA,  UDM PRESIDENT

Further internal investigations reveal that Xolani Mbutho, a former member of the Party’s Youth structure, forged a letter to a travel agent without the authority of the UDM National Youth Executive, the UDM National Treasurer or the UDM Chief Executive Officer, in order to rent vehicles for his own use.

The amount involved, runs into thousands of rands. For confirmation please do not hesitate to contact City Centre, Malek Travel & Tours, 031-307-6737. The forged letter is attached hereto.

The UDM National Management Committee and the UDM National Youth Executive distances themselves from Xolani Mbutho’s personal decision to hire these vehicles and holds him personally responsible for the debt incurred in the scheme.

The receipts reveal that these expenses were incurred between June and July 1999, and the UDM knows of no activities which warranted these expenses and therefore strongly condemns his arrogant audacity to implicate the UDM in the pursuit of his personal agenda.
