Themba Mavundla, KwaZulu-Natal chairperson of the MKMVA, had told delegates at the ANC KZN provincial general council at the University of Zululand, Empangeni, that they should be ready to defend the country from military-trained white people.
He had said MKMVA members and President Jacob Zuma had military skills to share with young people. However, Mkhize called Mavundla to order, saying that such statements would send the wrong message about the party.
Mavundla warned that “Boers are training in farms”.
“Young people, Boers are reorganising... Come closer to us so that we can provide you with little military skills so that you can defend yourself.
