The deputy chairperson of MKMVA in a statement earlier this week described the conference as divisive and fraudulent.

President Jacob Zuma spoke at the elective conference of the uMkhonto weSizwe Military Veterans Association (MKMVA) on Friday afternoon.

EWN reporter, Clement Manyathela told Afternoon Drive host, Redi Tlhabi that the elective conference has been marred by the absence of The National Executive Committee (NEC) members of the MKMVA.

Manyathela adds that even the deputy chairperson of the MKMVA said that a large portion of those attending the conference are in fact not former soldiers of the African National Congress (ANC) military wing.

We're going to be sitting through credentials and that's when we'll find out if the allegations made hold any weight.

Clement Manyathela, EWN Reporter

Manyathela explains that those who have chosen to refrain from attending the elective conference have already written to the Secretary General of the ANC, Gwede Mantashe, complaining about proper processes not being adhered to.

They are saying the elective conference is illegitimate

Manyathela says, in his address, the President spoke frankly about the issues facing the ANC.

Zuma also sent a stern warning to the delegates and South Africans of what he calls " the sporadic emergence of civil rights groups that mobilise on the basis of hostile opinions against the ANC and its leaders".
