Johannesburg - Umkhonto we Sizwe Military Veterans’ Association spokesperson Carl Niehaus wants the ANC to investigate what he described as lies that are being told about him to journalists by some senior party leaders.
Niehaus made the request for an internal probe in a letter addressed to ANC secretary-general Ace Magashule.
This comes after he was recently fingered in media reports in connection with a “fake tweet” that appeared on Magashule’s Twitter account on the mandate of the South African Reserve Bank as well as changes made to a press statement that the ANC resolved that the central bank’s mandate be expanded beyond price stability to include growth and employment.
He has denied being behind the so-called fake tweet and changes in the press statement.
In his letter dated June 9, Niehaus said he was concerned about personalised attacks launched against him emanating from within the ANC.
