#OccupyLuthuliHouse 'I'm very proud of how MKMVA conducted themselves' Maphatsoe

Head of the uMkhonto we Sizwe Military Veterans Association Kebby Maphatsoe, says it is the duty of the MKMVA to protect the African National Congress (ANC).

Maphotsoe says they were at Luthuli House to stop protesting members of #OccupyLuthuliHouse entering Luthuli House, but he insists that the military veterans were unarmed.

We took responsibility that this going to be responsibility of the MKMVA not the police.

We don't really want the processes of the ANC to be run by the State institutions because internal processes of the ANC must be resolved by ANC members.

Videos of journalists being pushed and insulted by MKMVA members have been circulating on social media.

Very much proud in the manner that MKMVA members behaved outside Luthuli House. They behaved very well.
