Tak­ing a pot­shot

CityPress - - Voices -

The miss­ing arm of Umkhonto weSizwe Mil­i­tary Vet­er­ans’ As­so­ci­a­tion (MKMVA) chair Kebby Maphat­soe at­tracted some mirth at the vet­er­ans’ con­fer­ence. For­mer MKMVA com­man­der Siphiwe Nyanda told at­ten­dees that Maphat­soe had sought help in try­ing to le­git­imise fraud­u­lent pro­cesses at the last MKMVA con­fer­ence “by sleight of hand”.

“Par­don the pun,” added Nyanda. “He arm-twisted the depart­ment of mil­i­tary vet­er­ans and mis­led them to fund the bo­gus con­fer­ence.”

An ex-com­bat­ant, an­gry at Maphat­soe, shouted: “We shot him, we shot him.” This sparked gig­gles at the ple­nary, but the vet­eran was not jok­ing.
