JOHANNESBURG – Members of the Umkhonto we Sizwe Military Veterans Association (MKMVA) in Gauteng on Monday demonstrated against the African National Congress (ANC), claiming that the party was rubbishing the country’s Constitution.

The association, together with the South African National Civic Organisation (Sanco), the Congress of South African Students (Cosas), and the SA National Cargo Transport and Drivers Association (Sancatdra), planned to hand over a memorandum to both the ANC and to Premier David Makhura’s office.

In recent weeks, they attempted to shut down parts of KwaZulu-Natal and Ekurhuleni.

The MKMVA was taking its frustrations over the ANC and Transport Minister Fikile Mbalula to the party’s national offices.

Joburg secretary Thandoxulo Dyodo said they had reached a point of no return.

“The ANC is being replaced with colours that are different from the ANC that we came with from exile,” Dyodo said.

Some of the complaints listed included former MK veterans feeling left out of the security cluster and non-South African truckers being hired.

While Mbalula refused to speak on the matter, he tweeted that those marching on Monday were thugs calling themselves MK. Dyodo, however, said Mbalula was nothing more than a terrorist.

“The infrastructure under his watch is being destroyed,” he said.

It is understood Mbalula cancelling security contracts at the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (Prasa) was what made him a target for many in the MKMVA.

The contracts were not renewed after allegations of collusion with criminals to strip the country’s rail networks through vandalism and theft.
