# The former mayor of Mkhondo, who is the financial muscle behind the largest gathering of uMkhonto weSizwe Party supporters, says the event in Mpumalanga cost him around 400-thousand-rand. Vusi Motha was arrested a year ago for the possession of an unlicenced firearm. He was booted out of the ANC in 2021, and joined the MK Party after a short stint as an EFF member. Motha believes MK offers a home for those who might have been misunderstood in the ANC. More MK Party rallies are expected to follow, with the next in KwaZulu-Natal on Sunday.
