Cape Town - Three senior ANC members are slugging it out publicly on Twitter.

Umkhonto weSizwe Military Veterans’ Association spokesperson, Carl Niehaus, took on Elections head, Fikile Mbalula, and former minister, Derek Hanekom.

Niehaus says he was glad ANC Secretary General, Ace Magashule, dismissed Mbalula's statement that votes for the party would have dropped to 40%, without Cyril Ramaphosa.

Mbalula then hit back saying Niehaus is a crook, and also questioned what he's doing at Luthuli House. 

You are a crook what the hell you doing at luthuli house is still a mystery to us now that we are done with elections we must deal with you .

Derek Hanekom weighed in saying Niehaus should rather talk about the money he took from people, telling them he's got bone marrow cancer. 

Carl, let's rather talk about the money you took from people with your story about having bone marrow cancer. A Deputy Minister even went to the funeral of your mother, only to discover that she was still alive. https://t.co/1gRCKsHNng
