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".

Carl Niehaus is indeed a crook, and crooks should keep a low profile, someone must teach him that.

disrespecting his seniors
I never got this culture (unfortunately I was brought up in similar one) of respecting seniors just because of their age. Respect to any human being is fine as a start point but zero respect if you are corrupt. In that case, putting you in jail is being respectful. To others.

Carl Niehaus..... What an excuse for a man. Should hang him by his balls, but he doesn't have any.

If this story is true how can this guy even show himself in public ?

https://www.sowetanlive.co.za/news/south-africa/2017-12-10-how-carl-niehaus-killed-mom-to-pay-r43-million-debt/

Disgraced political spin doctor Carl Niehaus “killed off” his mother in an elaborate hoax to wriggle out of paying a R4.3-million debt‚ the Sunday Times reported.

It said Niehaus owed the money to a former landlord for the rental of two apartments in Sandton‚ damage to expensive furnishings and artwork‚ unpaid concierge charges and interest.

In an audacious bid to avoid legal action‚ he claimed that his mother had died and he would soon receive a generous inheritance‚ 90% of which would allow him to settle the debt‚ the newspaper reported.
It quoted other Niehaus family members as saying that his mother‚ Magrietha Niehaus‚ 88‚ is in fact alive and living in a home for the elderly in Johannesburg.
