United Franschhoek Valley

Update regarding United Franschhoek Valley progress.

Registration as political party was approved by the IEC.  A bank account in the name of the party have been opened as well.

Next step will be to introduce the party to the broader community in the Franschhoek Valley.

In order for us to do proper planning and move forward we need financial support a.s.a.p.

Please find attached notice as appeared in the Tatler and a copy of our banking details.  Copy of our constitution have already been forwarded to you.  Please note that Arthur Mcwilliam Smith had a look at it and was very much impressed.

Herewith the Executive Committee as elected:

  • Chairperson:         Gordon Pheiffer
  • Vice Chair:             Charmaine Jacobs
  • Secretary:               Wallace Jacobs
  • Dep Secretary:      Zhikhomo Nduku
  • Treasurer:              Gershia Stevens

Our view is through hard work we can ensure that no big political party can get an outright majority vote in which case we can play an important role in enforcing the needs of the Franschhoek Valley community.

More important we want to set a platform indicating to the demarcation board that Franschhoek Valley meet all the requirements to form a municipality on its own with the inclusion of Pniel (also a former municipality).

We are looking forward to your support giving us a kickstart.
