The Malada family and the Peter ‘Dambuza’ Malada Foundation have appealed to Umkhonto We Sizwe (MK) Party and former President Jacob Zuma to refrain from any political opportunism in honor of the memory of this pillar of the struggle.

The MK party, supported by Zoumaplans to visit Limpopo on Friday, where he has a number of activities planned, including visits to the burial grounds of Collins Chabane and Peter ‘Dambuza’ Malada.

Loyal member of the ANC

The Malada family and foundation emphasized that Malada was a faithful African National Congress (ANC) member.

“While recognizing the challenges our country faces, we wish to emphasize that Peter Dambuza was a committed member of the ANC and its military wing, Umkhonto weSizwe, and its ideals. The Dambuza foundation and the Malada family remain loyal to the African National Congress.

“We refuse to allow Commander Dambuza’s name and legacy to be abused to divide our beloved movement, the ANC. As we all know, the four voting occasions that Peter Dambuza voted in this direction, are those of the ANC. As a result, the foundation and the family have neither the right nor the desire to change its decision regarding his grave,” they said.

The Malada family and foundation have called on the struggle icon’s comrades and the wider community to rally behind the ANC in the upcoming elections and “no one else”.

“We want to distance ourselves from viral social media platforms that claim that former President Jacob Zuma and his MK Party will visit the grave of the late MK Commander, Cde Peter Dambuza Malada. In our opinion, this is a malicious and crude attempt to distort the true values ​​of Cde Dambuza and what he stood for politically throughout his life.

“As the Malada family and the Peter Dambuza Foundation, we therefore call on the MK party to renounce all political opportunism, in honor of the memory of Cde Dambuza,” the family and the foundation said.

Malada died in August 2020, a few days before his 66th birthdayth birthday. He was buried in his native village of Makonde during a service attended by several party and alliance leaders.
