Magashule and Maphatsoe step in to deal with KZN military vets standoff


The same grouping embarked on a protest in September in an attempt to shut down Durban and delivered a memorandum of demands to the ANC provincial office.

While the meeting went on inside on Tuesday, men clad in military regalia, and brandishing placards declaring “we joined MK to free this country we remain ready”, sang struggle songs outside.

They were expecting Magashule, Maphatsoe and ANC provincial secretary Mdumiseni Ntuli to address them after the meeting.

The memorandum handed to the ANC during the “Durban shutdown” march two weeks ago included demands to ban foreigners from employment in transport, hospitality, education, medical sectors and strategic SOE positions, including employment as domestic and farm workers.

The list of demands ended with a call for “decent and meaningful employment and opportunities for former MK and other liberation war veterans”. 

Ntombela said the delegation inside the meeting included “truck drivers, hawkers and unemployed graduates” who were present to express their requests.
