What is UDC?

The Umbrella for Democratic Change is a heartfelt response to the cries, pleas and conjugations of a nation in distress.
For decades a divided opposition has given the BDP an undeservedly long lease on life. Parties pursued an our people spoke.
They spoke more loudly than they had ever done before. They expressed their yearning. They called for unity to pursue their agenda,
The public sector strike and it’s clarion call for regime change was clear in its indignant eloquence.We responded and made solemn pledges to our nation.
I and the other leaders of UDC have delivered on our pledges.We have kept our promise to Botswana. We have given you the Umbrella for 
Democratic Change.We now go further to present to Botswana our five pillared manifesto. It explores and marks out the endless possibilities change can give our country. It offers rescue to our citizens whose
talents have been wasted and lives thwarted by decades of BDP misrule. It calls for a refreshingly robust education that draws on
the latest technologies to impart a learning and skills to transform our society. It articulates an education system that will unlock and fulfil the genius and passion of our young people.
Our manifesto urges a system of governance truly rooted in accountability; delivering justice and services to all. We bring a new,vigorous infusion of talent and leadership.
Our manifesto offers no absolutes but humbly holds that our democracy must be re-energized to broaden and secure the ground on which our people can make their choices.
We offer change It is yours to embrace.
