Umkhonto weSizwe Military Veterans Association (MKMVA) spokesperson Carl Niehaus has been slammed by ANC head of elections Fikile Mbalula and Tourism Minister Derek Hanekom in yet another public spat involving senior leaders of the governing party.
The drama played out on Wednesday after Niehaus took to social media to complain about being blocked on Twitter by Mbalula.
Niehaus accused Mbalula of disrespecting his seniors in reference to ANC secretary general Ace Magushule, who over the past few days have disagreed on the role played by President Cyril Ramaphosa in saving the ANC in the elections.
This was after Mbalula said on Twitter the ANC Youth League (ANCYL) was sent by Magashule after they lashed out at him for his stance towards the secretary-general.
But, Mbalula wasted no time in having a go at Niehaus, accusing him of being a "crook".
