UCDP IS STILL IDEAL |
Oh well... UCDP is still IDEAL
These are words possibly and probably uttered by most if not all the people who had faith in the ANC and all the other parties which put the UCDP in 4th place in the North West, in the 2009 General Elections.
While much has happened in this beloved province of ours, one ought to take a moment of introspection to rewind to what the Premier of North West said in her 2012 State Of the Province Address; unlike other parties, the UCDP highlights issues and problems in the Province but always seeks to provide solutions to the various predicaments (amplified version).
We have long uttered words of recommendation in the interest of citizens, that the UCDP is the only party which can lead South Africa and the North West province to where they are supposed to be. First it was the mockery drama which took place in Potchefstroom (Tlokwe City Council) between the leading and official opposition party. This saw Potchefstroom residents without water for days, a basic need limited with no valid justification.
Then it was the issue of two mayors having to be booted out, supposedly for self gain. Is it me or is the provincial leadership of ANC more focused on deploying each other rather than delivering the promised needs. The election process is all about quid pro quo, you scratch my back and I'll scratch yours. A receiprocal contract where one party promises to do something for the other, likewise! Now, why escape liability when you have to deliver your end of the bargain?!
I urge all members of the UCDP to start capitalizing on what the ANC failed to achieve, failed to address the water shortage efficiently in the Province. Oh yes, UCDP is still Ideal!
