- A former MK member, Kebby Maphatsoe, says he can reveal stories of atrocities committed in the ANC camps in exile during the anti-apartheid struggle
- He says these include rape and murder, among other crimes
- Maphatsoe says he is angry at the way his role in the struggle has been misrepresented
MKMVA president Kebby Maphatsoe has threatened to reveal damning information about the ANC.
He says he knows about wrongdoing perpetrated in the ANC's military camps in exile.
Maphatsoe says he can reveal stories of lies, rape and murder by the ANC.
Maphatsoe says that he ran away from such an ANC camp during the anti-apartheid struggle after he was shot. However, he also claims that he was trying to escape the atrocities he witnessed at the camp, Briefly.co.za has gathered.
Maphatsoe is not the only former MK member to allege that crimes took place in the ANC camps. However, he said that the country would be shocked if he revealed what he knows - and that the ANC would suffer for it.
Maphatsoe is threatening to reveal this information as he says is upset by the way his role in the anti-apartheid struggle is often misrepresented. For example, some have dismissed Maphatsoe's role in MK, saying he was little more than a 'camp cook', according to Eyewitness News.
"I have ignored these attacks for a long time," Maphatsoe said, referring to these claims, "and the day I speak, it won't be nice."
Maphatsoe says that one of his friends was beaten to death by his "own comrades" in an ANC camp.
