MK expels founders and other members

According to IOL, MKP spokesperson Nhlamulo Ndhlela severely criticised the former members. He added that the party had an intelligence report that revealed that the members who had been chased out of the party had acted on behalf of external forces to influence and destabilise the party. He also said Khumalo, who was the co-founder of the party, had a ceremonial role and no fundamental role in the MKP.

Ndhlela also said that expelling the former party members would not impact the party's election campaign and delivered a scathing rebuke.

"These people were becoming cancer in the organisation, and their actions risked collapsing it, and the party had to act to put a stop to that."

South Africans stunned

Netizens discussing the sudden change of events on @ComradeMDU's tweet were shocked that Khumalo was no longer part of the MKP.

Dreezy Shango said:

"It's a known fact that Khumalo registered the party, but little did he know that it's actually a family social club to preserve and protect the JZ controversial legacy."

Kenny said:

"Khumalo must close this party down tomorrow."

Spokesperson said:

"Khumalo, though. Did he think that, in his sober mind, he could dribble Msholozi?"

CheGuevara said:

"I think Zuma doesn't want what happened in the ANC to happen in the MK party, where spies were allowed in influential positions."

Mandla Nungunde Ngwenya said:

"Baba J Khumalo might deregister his party."
