Umkhonto weSizwe Military Veterans’ Association (MKMVA) spokesperson Carl Niehaus has vowed to continue defending former president Jacob Zuma, adding that not even his arrest can deter him from expressing his condemnation.
Niehaus was arrested on live television on Thursday afternoon, 8 July 2021, outside the Estcourt Correctional services Centre where Zuma is serving his 15-month sentence.
