ANC Veterans League response to resignation of Mavuso Msimang and allegations of Secretary General Fikile Mbalula
Regrettably, Cde Mavuso Msimang the Deputy President of the ANCVL has decided to resign from the ANC. His resignation is acknowledged. It is equally regrettable that the Secretary General of the ANC has made allegations against the Veteran’s League that we are undermining the ANC.
As the ANCVL we have and will continue to raise issues of corruption internally in the organisation. Further, we will continue to engage at provincial and national levels in the list processes to take a stand against individuals who are implicated in corrupt activities including those fingered by the Zondo Commission being part of election lists for provincial and national legislatures.
We reject the allegation that by doing this, we are undermining the ANC. We believe this is the only path to renew the ANC and restore the legitimacy of the ANC in the eyes of the people.
We continue to believe that the ANC is the only organisation that can best take forward the interests of the poor and is committed to our constitutional democracy including the Bill of Rights and the rule of law.
As the ANCVL we will remain committed to bringing back the integrity and dignity of the organisation and win the coming elections with a resounding victory.
Issued by the ANCVL
