UMKHONTO WE SIZWE MILITARY VETERANS ASSOCIATION (MKMVA) PUTS THE RECORD STRAIGHT
Date: 3 October 2017
Umkhonto we Sizwe Military Veterans Association (MKMVA) has noted that a renegade grouping calling themselves the MK National Council are holding a conference coming weekend. This so-called conference is neither official nor inclusive. It must be pointed out that statements by the so-called MK National Council to the effect that their conference includes the possible participation of MKMVA as a structure, or our members, are deliberately misleading and devoid of any truth.
MKMVA held our 5th National Conference from the 8th - 11th of June 2017, and at that legitimately constituted Conference our National Executive Committee and National Office Bearers (NOT) were elected. These elected officials were given a clear mandate with official Conference Resolutions that we are effectively carrying out. MKMVA is the only legitimate structure representing Umkhonto we Sizwe (MK) veterans.
MKMVA lives and MKMVA leads!
