Maphatsoe awaits report before officially complaining about ANC integrity body

African National Congress (ANC's) uMkhonto weSizwe Military Veterans Association (MKMVA) president Kebby Maphatsoe says while he respects the party's integrity commission it must be wary of the potential trauma and reputational damage it could cause.

Maphatsoe says he was recently called before the commission without details on the scope of its inquiry.

He says when he appeared he was asked to account for allegations made in media reports for over 10 years - like how he lost his arm.

I have explained this many a times. This is an organisational matter, why don't you ask the ANC to respond on that? How does this bring the ANC into disrepute? It is personal and has the potential of traumatising the family.

Kebby Maphatsoe, President - MKMVA

When the integrity commission deals with these things, they must note the sensitivity of these things but also it can destroy my credibility in society especially because I am a bishop in a church.

Kebby Maphatsoe, President - MKMVA

The people who have been attacking me in the media about how I lost my arm, they were never there, they do not know what it looks like.

He insists the commission should approach the party leadership if they have questions over his limb.

There is nothin. If you want information, why don't you ask the ANC how I lost my arm? If you push me too far I will speak and say what happened and how I lost my arm. I have been very patient about this thing for a very long time... I am a human being also, I can fight back.

Kebby Maphatsoe, President - MKMVA

I am waiting for the report but I am going to write officially to the ANC.
