About Mncedisi Lutando Wellington Filtane

What is your political background? I was actively involved in the formation of the Youth League in Umtata in the 1970s. I was approached by the security branch while at university and asked to become a spy, which I turned down. This request led to my resignation from politics and it cost me, as I was unable to finish the degree I was pursuing. After my resignation from politics, I kept myself informed about what was happening in South Africa, and I formed opinions, read newspapers and subsequently proceeded with my studies. It was only in August 2013 that I approached General Bantu Holomisa after having looked at all political parties. I chose the UDM because the party positions itself in the central left and this was my preferred position. I believed that I could play a critical role in the party. Read more here...
