MK Veterans get involved in PRASA splat

The leader of the uMkhonto we Sizwe Military Veterans Association and Deputy Minister of Defence and Military Veterans, Kebby Maphatsoe appears to condemn what appear to be threats.

Maphatsoe also speaks to Stephen about why his organisation has previously marched against PRASA demanded changes to the board and why PRASA is relevant to MKMVA.

Maphatsoe denies that they are getting involved in this matter with PRASA due to tender opportunities. He says that PRASA has employed many military veterans (led by Lucky Montana) but that MKMVA don’t involve themselves with the business of PRASA.
