In his response, Niehaus said “Minister @MbalulaFikile the day you are an ANC veteran of 42 years, who served 10 years as a political prisoner for my membership of the ANC & MK you can dare to talk to me in this tone. You’re not worthy to walk in the old shoes of those MK cadres that you insulted.”
Mbalula continued on Twitter saying that “They run amok organising marches threatening the rule of law, Suspected criminals Kebby and Karl Niehaus.”
“Kebby maphatsoe ran away from the camps that is why he’s got one hand,He lost his hand from cowardice not in a fight against apartheid. COWARD”
“They organise tired self defence units and they call themselves MK with old gupta sponsored camaflouge uniform its even warn out.”
“Karl Niehaus faked the death of his own mother ,Faked death of his own mother ,faked death of his own mother today he is showing up with chicken audacity threatening everyone including the state.”
