UBUNTU Party in First ZULU National Debate on SABC Radio

On the 24th of June 2016 the UBUNTU Party participated in its first LIVE political debate broadcast on SABC radio.

Nicholas Mavuso who is the UBUNTU Party candidate in Belfast, South Africa, represented UBUNTU. It was the first time that the UBUNTU plan of action and manifesto was represented in the Zulu language. We have had phone calls from several of our other candidates in rural areas sharing their excitement with us, that they heard the UBUNTU message on radio. It has brought a lot of support and credibility to their campaigns amongst their people.
As a result of this, Nicholas was invited by his local pastor to address the congregation in church next Sunday. Upon hearing the UBUNTU message the pastor said that "this has been given to the people by God."
This is not the only place in South Africa where pastors and preachers are spreading the UBUNTU message amongst their people. Roger Lambert, who is a pastor himself, is the UBUNTU mayoral candidate in Saldanha Bay Municipality. He has already converted several of the pastors in his area to the philosophy of UBUNTU. In African culture, radio is a critical channel of communication in the rural areas and is spreading the UBUNTU message very quickly among  the people.

Please keep supporting us - the elections are on 3 August 2016 and we need to intensify our campaign in the next 5 weeks. Make a contribution here please:
