Umkhonto Wesizwe Party unaware of postponement in Zuma’s Disciplinary Hearings

The uMkhonto Wesizwe Party (MKP) has revealed that they have not been officially notified of any postponement regarding the disciplinary hearings scheduled for Tuesday, May 7th, 2024, involving former President Jacob Zuma. These hearings were set to address Zuma’s involvement in forming a new party while still being a member of the African National Congress (ANC).

According to the spokesperson of the MKP, they have not received any formal communication regarding the postponement. “We have only seen the letter from Fikile Mbalula on social media, but we have not received any official notification of the changes. President Jacob Zuma is expected to attend Luthuli House on Tuesday, and members of the MK Party will show their support until we receive official confirmation,” stated Ndlela in an interview with the Informer.

Ndlela’s remarks come in response to a letter from ANC Secretary General Fikile Mbalula to the chairperson of the Disciplinary Committee, Ralph Mgijima, citing security concerns and postponing the hearings. Mbalula expressed concerns about potential violence, particularly in light of the upcoming National and Provincial elections on May 29th, 2024.

In the letter dated May 3rd, Mbalula stated that the ANC officials have decided to suspend activities, including disciplinary hearings, until after the 2024 elections due to security risks associated with large gatherings. This decision also includes the disciplinary hearings of JG Zuma.

Ndlela expressed disbelief at Mbalula’s claims of potential violence, citing the peaceful support the MKP has shown Zuma in previous court appearances. “We have supported Zuma in courts without any violence. Why would there be violence when we are outside Luthuli House?” questioned Ndlela.
