The Young Communist League must respect the minister of Defence, the Umkhonto weSizwe Military Veterans Association said yesterday.

"MKMVA condemns the attacks on the minister. We should desist from creating a situation where the command structure is disturbed by disrespect," MKMVA secretary Ayanda Dlodlo said.

MKMVA was responding to criticism by the YCL of Defence and Military Veterans Minister Lindiwe Sisulu's decision to dismiss soldiers involved in strike action last month.

"She has showed appreciation of her duties, and demonstrated willingness to transform the conditions of soldiers and military veterans,"Dlodlo said. - Sapa
