UMkhonto Wesizwe Dismisses Allegations Of Misusing Party Funds

He dismissed these claims as lies and attributed them to an individual with a personal grudge against the party.

The uMkhonto weSizwe (MK) Party has vehemently denied allegations of misusing party funds and donations, dismissing them as baseless rumours aimed at tarnishing the party’s image.

In an interview with The Citizen, MK spokesperson Nhlamulo Ndhlela refuted claims that large sums of money were disappearing from the party’s Capitec accounts after receiving donations.

Ndhlela clarified that the MK Party does not have a Capitec account, as alleged, and instead operates a Standard Bank account that is governed by the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC). He labelled the rumours as “gossip, propaganda, and rumours” with no factual basis.

Furthermore, Ndhlela denied the allegations that former SAA chairperson Dudu Myeni and Duduzile Zuma-Sombudla, daughter of former president Jacob Zuma, were key signatories to the MK bank accounts.

He dismissed these claims as lies and attributed them to an individual with a personal grudge against the party.

While Ndhlela acknowledged that the MK Party was open to scrutiny by the IEC or other enforcement agencies, he maintained that the party’s finances were transparent and compliant with IEC regulations.

He emphasised that membership fees were governed by the same regulations.

The recent tweet by a prominent businessman alleging the movement of over R900,000 from an MK bank account following a pro-Palestine event remains unverified and unsubstantiated.
