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.
