Niehaus and Mbabula feud 'gives us a glimpse of the push and pull within ANC'
The feud between Transport Minister Fikile Mbabula and Carl Niehaus and the Umkhonto WeSizwe Military Veterans Association is stepping up a level. Mbuluala went on a Twitter tirade against Niehaus and the Umkhonto WeSizwe Military Veterans Association earlier this week.
Niehaus says he has contacted a lawyer and is filing a defamation suit against Mbalula.
EWN reporter Tshidi Madia unpacks the story.
