UDM SUPPORTS CENSUS

STATEMENT ISSUED BY BANTU HOLOMISA, MP
UDM PRESIDENT

The UDM supports Census 2001. It is in our opinion a worthwhile exercise that must be executed in a fashion beneficial to all the people of South Africa. We encourage all our supporters to participate in the Census.

The UDM distances itself from the statement made by Mr C. Martin, UDM MPL in the Eastern Cape. The personal views expressed by Mr Martin are sectoral, and do not represent the official view of the UDM.

Furthermore, the UDM will deal with Mr Martin through internal disciplinary structures. He will be asked to publicly apologise for his statements.
