protestThe Witness reports that former liberation struggle ex-combatants from Pietermaritzburg on Wednesday staged a protest outside the ANC Johannesburg headquarters where they demanded benefits.

The group, which included members of the Mkhonto weSizwe Military Veterans Association (MKMVA) former members of the Pan Africanist Congress’s Azanian People’s Liberation Army (Apla) and Azapo’s Azanian National Liberation Army (Azanla), has been sleeping at the ANC offices since Sunday. The group’s leader, Lwazi Mzobe, said they were demanding a R2.2 million reparation for each member who participated in the liberation struggle. “We have been writing letters to the ANC leaders, including President Cyril Ramaphosa, but so far we have not received any response. Our position is that we will continue with the protest until we get a satisfactory response,” he stated.
