The president of the Umkhonto we Sizwe Military Veterans Association (MKMVA), Kebby Maphatsoe, announced that he will be lodging a formal compliant against Cyril Ramaphosa and Lindiwe Sisulu for deepening divisions within the African National Congress.
Maphatsoe was responding to the Deputy President and Minister of Human Settlements presence at the MK National Council’s conference held over the weekend in Johannesburg.
He said the two had no business being at the conference and accused them of being factional and going overboard in deepening divisions within the party to strengthen their bids to become party leaders.
Maphatsoe said that he would write to the ANC leadership and request that Ramaphosa and Sisulu be disciplined for their actions.
Aside from divisions within the ANC, the MK association itself is facing factionalism between the MKMVA and MKNC.
The MKNC lodged a complaint with the ANC national executive council (ANC NEC) regarding the results of the MKMVA’s June elective conference.
Maphatsoe accused the MKNC of attempting to destabilise the Umkhonto we Sizwe movement and said that only the ANC can question its legitimacy.
He said that they are waiting on the NEC to rule on the MKNC’s complaint.
