UDM leader Bantu Holomisa says any one political party that thinks it can bring about political change on its own is 'living in a fool’s paradise'. | JasonFelix

UDM leader Bantu Holomisa believes opposition parties can remove the ANC from power.

UDM leader Bantu Holomisa says any one political party that thinks it can bring about political change on its own is living in a fool’s paradise. "In particular where the soaring crime rates are concerned, and the instability that it causes, the law enforcement and security experts in the UDM should gather to draft a paper on these issues and their solutions. Any one political party that thinks it is going to make a difference on its own is living in a fool’s paradise."

Indications were that the ANC was already catering for the elite and pursuing economic policies that benefitted a few, Holomisa said. Holomisa added that a multi-party democracy was the country’s only defence against one-party dominance and dictatorship."Political parties might struggle to find each other, considering that they have different ideologies and political philosophies. The advantage is that precedents have been created in different places in the world where political parties with different interests work together without losing their identities," he said.
