Former president Jacob Zuma has provided insight into the removal of certain leaders within the uMkhonto weSizwe (MK) party.

This week, the MK party announced the dismissal of interim youth leader Bonginkosi Khanyile, youth secretary-general Gaan Cibane, interim deputy youth league president Thapelo Maisha, and interim provincial coordinator for Gauteng Gazuzu Nduli.

While the MK Party stated that these individuals would be redeployed to strategic positions, they refrained from providing detailed explanations for their removals.

However, Zuma suggested that the dismissals were related to addressing individuals associated with running parallel structures within the MK party. He emphasized that the party only has interim structures and needs to tackle those operating outside of these frameworks.

Zuma assured supporters that further details regarding the removals would be disclosed later, without mentioning any specific names.

Speaking outside the Johannesburg High Court after the postponement of his case involving the private prosecution of President Cyril Ramaphosa, Zuma emphasized the MK party’s stance against individuals attempting to forcibly take over party structures. He reiterated that the party’s interim structures are temporary and emphasized the importance of respecting the democratic process.

Zuma affirmed the party’s commitment to focusing on building a party that upholds respect for the nation and its elders, indicating plans to transition to permanent structures after the elections.

The former president’s remarks underscore the ongoing internal dynamics within the MK party and the efforts to establish a cohesive and respectful political entity in the months ahead.
