Veterans won't interfere with ANCYL
Johannesburg - The Umkhonto we Sizwe Military Veterans’ Association (MKMVA) will not interfere with the ANC Youth League's march programme, it said on Thursday.
Chairperson Kebby Maphatsoe told reporters in Johannesburg the organisation would not comment on ANCYL's economic freedom march.
"How they celebrate [former ANC president] Oliver Tambo's birthday is up to them," he said.
The MKMVA would hold its own celebrations of Tambo's birthday at Liliesleaf Farm in Sandton on Thursday.
Maphatsoe said United States civil rights leader Jesse Jackson would be the keynote speaker at the celebration.
