The conduct of ANC military veterans raises concerns

"The actions of the ANC's MK veterans raise concerns and create the impression that it is a private army rather than an actual veterans organisation. The young age of some members that are part of the organization and who appear in uniforms and even handle firearms shows that they could certainly not be veterans and former members of uMkhonto we Sizwe,” Dr. Pieter Groenewald, FF Plus leader, says.

"Private army units are illegal and stringent action should be taken against this sort of para-military structures and conduct.

"It is also unacceptable that these 'veterans' are used to protect and defend Luthuli House as it means they are deployed operationally which is illegal. A military veterans’ organization's purpose is to support former soldiers on a social-welfare basis and not to be used for operational activities.

"The FF Plus will ask questions in parliament to the minister regarding the structure and utilization of the MK veterans," Dr. Groenewald said.
