JOHANNESBURG – Members and commanders of the ANC's erstwhile armed wing, uMkhonto we Sizwe, are the latest to speak out against the party's current state of leadership.

They have joined other stalwarts in decrying the loss of the party’s moral high ground and leadership voice in society.

The group includes former SANDF chiefs Siphiwe Nyanda and Nhlanhla Ngwenya.

Among them are current deputy ministers Thabang Makwetla and Bheki Cele, as well as ANC NEC members Tony Yengeni and Thenjiwe Mtintso.

They have called for an assembly of former MK members to be held on December 17, with the aim of consolidating the position of former combatants on the party’s challenges ahead of its consultative and policy conference next year.
