MKMVA opposes Zuma judgement and any mention of disbandment

Published on

Carl Niehaus shared a media release on behalf of the MKMVA, opposing the judgement on Jacob Zuma and reiterating that association will not be disbanded by the ANC.

On Tuesday, 6 July 2021, uMkhonto weSizwe Military Veterans Association (MKMVA) and African National Congress (ANC) member, Carl Niehaus issued a media release on behalf of the association, condemning the 15-month prison sentence of former president, Jacob Zuma. Niehaus also rejected any attempted disbanding of the MKMVA. The media release was issued on Sunday, 4 July 2021.

According to Niehaus, the MKMVA expressed dismay at the judgement delivered by the former acting Chief Justice, Sisi Khampepe, who sentenced Jacob Zuma to 15 months in prison on a case of contempt. The association believes this judgement was unprecedented. The MKMVA in Gauteng also stated that it strongly opposes such drastic measures by the Apex Court of the land, as a court of first and last instance.

The matter involving Zuma and the Commission of Inquiry into State Capture, under Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo, has reportedly been seen as a contest of miscarriage of justice, where in-rights of citizens are trampled upon by the institutions that are supposed to uphold the same law. The MKMVA, in the same breath, stated that it would not accept the disbandment of the association by the ANC National Working Committee (NWC).
