Staffer Carl Niehaus, a staunch supporter of both suspended ANC secretary-general Ace Magashule and former president Jacob Zuma, has until 11am on Friday morning to collect all his belongings from the party’s Luthuli House headquarters.
He had been employed on the sixth floor of Luthuli House in the secretary-general’s office.
Niehaus who was suspended in July, for among other things, bringing the ANC into disrepute over his remarks outside the home of Zuma where he, representing the disbanded Umkhonto we Sizwe Military Veterans Association, essentially threatened violence ahead of Zuma’s arrest.
He was sent a sack letter on Thursday evening by ANC general manager Febe Potgieter.
In the letter, Potgieter tells Niehaus that he has been dismissed “summarily” for failing to provide sufficient reasons why he should not be fired.
This was after he threatened to lay criminal charges on behalf of the party’s dissatisfied workers against the ANC top six – which includes party president Cyril Ramaphosa over nonpayment of provident and pension funds, as well as UIF.
Potgieter further stated that instead of providing reasons why he should not be fired, Niehaus chose to view the opportunity as an attack on him.
This is not the first time Staffer Carl has found himself at odds with his organisation and employer, the ANC.He has also been accused of continuously disrespecting the ANC under the leadership of Ramaphosa.
