PRESS RELEASE: UDM to approach government on people's needs
In light of the growing number of service delivery protests around the country, the United Democratic Movement National Executive Committee (UDM NEC) met early this year and resolved to help communities take their service delivery concerns to Government. The following programmes flow directly from this resolution.
On the 17th of April 2013, the national leadership of United Democratic Movement (UDM) will at 10:h00 lead a service delivery march for the OR Tambo Region from Khaya Majola Cricket Stadium, Norwood in Mthatha to the government at the Botha Sigcawu Building in Mthatha. The purpose of the march is to hand over the community's list of service delivery grievances to the Premier of the Eastern Cape, Ms Noxolo Kiviet, who has been requested to receive it on behalf of Government. The community's grievances range from, among others, inadequately resourced clinics and hospitals, constant power failures, impassable roads and an unreliable water supply.
While on the 27th of April 2013, UDM structures in Limpopo will provide the people of Limpopo Province the opportunity to hand over their list of service delivery concerns to the UDM national leadership during the Freedom Day celebrations, which will take place at Tshadama Secondary School in the Vhembe District of Limpopo. The UDM will then hand these grievances over to Government for attention.
