MK truth or dare

CityPress - - Voices -

The Umkhonto WeSizwe Mil­i­tary Vet­er­ans’ As­so­ci­a­tion (MKMVA) is led, iron­i­cally, by a well-known army de­serter. As if that is not bad enough for the as­so­ci­a­tion’s im­age, its mem­bers have now set­tled for a self­con­fessed liar as their spokesper­son.

This week, the me­dia was bom­barded by MKMVA emails sent by Carl Niehaus, who has ad­mit­ted to hav­ing forged sig­na­tures while work­ing for govern­ment. Niehaus, who is sud­denly an ex­pert on Gupta-owned TV chan­nel ANN7, was also ex­posed for ly­ing about hav­ing a doc­tor­ate.

Should we re­ally be ex­pected to be­lieve any­thing he sends us?
