Johannesburg – The Umkhonto weSizwe Military Veterans Association (MKMVA) gave a tongue-lashing to several ANC leaders on Wednesday at Luthuli House, accusing them of colluding with white capitalists to oust President Jacob Zuma.MKMVA chairperson Kebby Maphatsoe told journalists that those who had come out accusing the influential Gupta family of attempting to capture the state were in bed with the likes of billionaire businessman Johann Rupert."You would have observed that it started as just a small thing, the Gupata’s have captured the state.“Then Mcebisi Jonas [Deputy Finance Minister] coming out and Vytjie Mentor [former ANC MP] and many, many more have come out, and we are not surprised Ronald Lamola came out at the NEC meeting.“What a coincidence. It shows there was plan by these people, including Rupert. Now that we know who (is) supporting these people who want regime change in South Africa,” Maphatsoe said.Jonas and Mentor made shocking revelations earlier this month, claiming the Guptas had allegedly offered them ministerial positions.Maphatsoe then took a swipe at senior MK veterans who had signed a petition calling for the ANC to axe Zuma."There was a group of so-called MK generals who wrote a petition to the ANC and again what a coincidence... To us it leaves us with no option but to conclude that there was a plan to put pressure on the ANC NEC to recall the president. The so-called generals are not in any way representing the MK,” he said.Several senior commanders and commissars of the MKMVA wrote to the ANC urging that a dignified exit should be negotiated for Zuma.Maphatsoe said he had received calls from other generals, asking him to respond to the petition.
