Protesters representing the Liberation Struggle War Veterans (LSWV) marched to African National Congress (ANC) Headquarters on Monday, 11 October 2021, regarding grievances as veterans. A delegation engaged with the LSWV, since they were informed that ANC Officials are deployed in the elections campaign.


The group demanded to see Officials. Deputy President David Mabuza, who chairs the Presidential Task Team on the issues of Military veterans, will meet them this coming Thursday of the 14th of October 2021, since the matters are being processed by government. The LSWV comprises military veterans from Umkhonto we Sizwe, Apla and AZAN LA.

The process started by President Cyril Ramaphosa to address the grievances of military and war veterans must be supported, so as to expeditiously address legitimate grievances of veterans.

The group was allowed to sleep in the offices on Monday night, so as to not contravene the Covid regulations.

On Tuesday evening, whilst discussions between delegations about practical arrangements were in progress, a breach of our headquarters took place. We have ordered the immediate evacuation of our offices, so that this breach can be attended to, with the help of the relevant health and security authorities.
