The ANC’s military veterans have warned that a coup d’etat could result in South Africa should former president Jacob Zuma be arrested for leaving the Zondo commission of inquiry into state capture. Leader of the Zuma-aligned Umkhonto we Sizwe Military Veterans Association, Kebby Maphatsoe, told News24 on Tuesday: “We are not saying Zuma is special or is above the law, no, but we are saying you are dealing with a person that, he was a former president, but also he was a former commander-in-chief [of the SA National Defence Force] and [he is] a patron-in-chief of the MKMVA”. Maphatsoe warned that those who loved Zuma might react emotionally and hinted that this could result in his supporters overthrowing President Cyril Ramaphosa, while also warning of general violence during marches by MKMVA members.
