"Those who criticize Mkhweban have no respect for the Constitution"

JOHANNESBURG – Head of the Umkhonto We, a member of the National Veterans' Association (MKMVA) of the African National Congress (ANC), Kebby Maphatsoe says ministers criticizing the public protectorate undermine the Constitution.

This week, ANC president and mineral resource minister Gwede Mantashe joined other senior leaders of the ANC alliance, who have declared public attorney Busisiwe Mkhwebane for the incompetent, saying he was mixing political issues.

MKMVA came to its defense after the ANC issued a statement calling for respect for the institutions from the 9th chapter.

Maphatsoe accused Mantashe and other senior ANC leaders who pledged their oath during their ministerial appointments.

Maphatsoe says the same is true of those who are still alive while Mkhweban is allegedly fiercely attacked.

"All in all, as deputies, we have pledged our oath to respect the Constitution, so we go out to the public, undermining the oath we have taken over respecting the Constitution. So you undermine the oath that we just took.

This week, South Korean Communist Party (SACP) deputy secretary Solly Mapail claims Mkhweban has been influenced by rebel leader and factional president Cyril Ramaphos.

Mkhwebane later repented of the blow, saying Mapila had to present evidence of allegations or apologize, otherwise she would take legal action.

Meanwhile, Mantashe says he falsely engages in political affairs.

Maphatsoe warned that criticisms directed at Mkhweban could lead to a constitutional crisis.
