Mandla Zondi, the coordinator of the Moses Mabhida region said that the African National Party (ANC) does not owe the children of struggle veterans anything.
In a scathing attack, he said that the kids of veterans had a false sense of entitlement. He was speaking at an Oliver Tambo memorial lecture in Camperdown.
Briefly.co.za learned that initially, his speech began with him rebuking members who refused to step aside, believing that the party owed them something.
Zondi claimed that he was a descendant of the Zondi clan who resisted the colonialists in the KZN Midlands. He also claimed that he was directly related to the chief of the Zondi clan, Inkosi Bhambatha Zondi.
He said that he was disturbed to see in the news that the kids of veterans were complaining that they were neglected.
However, the last time the children of struggle veterans featured in the news was in 2016 when they protested against former President Zuma over his refusal to resign over the findings of the Constitutional Court regarding the alterations to his home in Nkandla according to iol.co.za.
Recently, Nkandla has hit the headlines again as VBS investors are seeking to recuperate money from the bank spent on covering Jacob Zuma's loan for the repayments to the renovations to his private home.
