The United Democratic Movement (UDM) will launch its election manifesto in Pretoria on Sunday.
The event will serve as an opportunity for the party’s leader, Bantu Holomisa to intensify the UDM’s support base in Gauteng.
The opposition party founded in 1999 by Holomisa following his expulsion from the African National Congress (ANC) occupies at least one seat in each of the four Gauteng’s municipalities.
They include Ekurhuleni, Johannesburg Metro Council, Westernoria and Merafong in Carltonville.
This follows the Democratic Alliance manifesto launch at the Rand stadium, south of Johannesburg on Saturday.
The DA says it has enough experience to successfully run municipalities and gave examples of Cape Town and Midvaal.
The DA has also promised to speed up the provision of water, sanitation and electricity in the towns and cities that it governs.
DA leader Mmusi Maimane unveiled the party’s election manifesto in Johannesburg on Saturday which also promises to transform cities into vibrant business hubs, invest heavily in public transport, deliver housing and accelerate the delivery of title deeds so people can own their own homes.
