MOUTSE – The United Christian Democratic Party (UCDP) has launched at Mpheleng Sports Grounds in Moutse on Sunday 25 October, as part of the upcoming 2021 local government elections programme of action. The launch was attended by dozens of residents coming from various villages in Elias Motsoaledi Local Municipality. Addressing the people, UCDP Limpopo Provincial Chairman, Mpowelo Swathe, said the organization is honoured to have succeeded in its programme of expansion through recruitment drive to a point where they launched new branches. “It shows a turning point of political landscape. When we announced and started the initiative our political rivals wrote obituary on our UCDP existence, saying it must rest in peace in graveyard.
Today we prove all doomsayers wrong. We emerge as a powerful political party. The UCDP is now the fastest growing party to date in Limpopo,” he said. Swathe added that the UCDP managed to recruit and registered more than five thousand new members in a short space of time. “The UCDP continue to grow from strength to strength and will contest all municipal wards in Limpopo. The organization will do that because of the masses’ demands as we are asked by many people daily about our expansion and commitment to participate in General Municipal Elections of 2021 and we are urged to participate,” explained Swathe. He said many people became interested to join after reading their pamphlets, especially after knowing that the party previously did well when it was governing Bophuthatswana years ago. “They learnt about good and clean government, corruption free government, service delivery to all the people.
They learnt about real infrastructure development and massive job creation which includes among the real good living conditions. The UCDP provided poor people with land, good quality education, sustainable, transport infrastructure, security and quality health care facilities,” he said. Swathe indicated that the UCDP government has built a tangibly quality sports and recreational facilities. “We put God first and all leaders are servants of God. We fear only God and not individuals. The UCDP serve and will always put people up front. Our former President Dr Kgosi Lucas Mangope was a real servant, he never participated in corruption but he jailed all those who attempted corruption. The UCDP government will act harshly against all corrupt leaders currently and previous. We will be creating jobs from Agriculture, Mining, Infrastructure development and maintenance, small scale farmers, leisure, sports, tourism, cooperatives, small and media enterprises, media, health and safety. Corruption, malfeasance and chaos will be stopped. The UCDP government will bring prosperity and dignity to all,” concluded Swathe.
