The almost forgotten and far left Carl Niehaus was elected to the ANC’s Umkhonto weSizwe Military Veterans Association (MKMVA) last week, rather than as a member of the National Executive Committee.
Criticism against him forced him to defend his position.
He acknowledged that he falsified signatures as chief executive officer of Gauteng’s Development Agency and that he had also borrowed money from top ANC members over the six-year period, the “most” of which was not paid back. Then he called on Brett Kebble for “financial assistance.”
He sees these skeletons, which are now surfacing as something that is not necessary.
Niehaus was a fervent ANC supporter and spokesman for the party. Later he was an ambassador to the Netherlands and disappeared from the political scene when his financial escapades came to an end.
His partial return to the communist ANC structures is now receiving similar resistance and is treated just as coldly as Marthinus van Schalkwyk, and even Helen Zille.
