Former intelligence minister's defamation case against MK veteran postponed

The defamation case against uMkhonto we Sizwe Military Veterans Association (MKMVA) head Kebby Maphatsoe has been postponed until tomorrow, after his lawyers argued that they want MKMVA to be the second defendants.

Former Intelligence Minister Ronnie Kasrils is suing Maphatsoe for R1 million following the remarks he made two years ago.

Maphatsoe allegedly made remarks that Kasrils gave legal advice to Khwezi, the woman who laid rape charges against President Jacob Zuma, and accused Kasrils of being an enemy of the revolution for dismissing a number of soldiers of uMkhonto we Sizwe (MK).

According to EWN reporter, Gia Nicolaides, Kasril's legal team led by Advocate Dali Mpofu said they will oppose the request.
