The end of 2014 saw a surge in activity for many conflicts on the continent, and with it, a changing South African National Defence Force (SANDF). The country’s much-touted defence review remains in legislative limbo, while the country’s troops continue to occupy the Eastern DRC, Darfur and the Mozambican Channel with uncertain outcomes. Nonetheless, requirements placed on the SANDF by the government and regional organisations are propelling the SANDF into a 2015 that will demand that hard decisions be made, lest the force become catastrophically overstretched and underfunded.

With all the economic restraints in South Africa we could have done better in fighting crime and corruption within our own borders.
Our military expansion in AFRICA does not justify our presence in some under developed country on this CONTINENT.
THE AU SHOULD BE FUNDED AND CONTROLLED BY THE UNITED NATIONS!
We have our own Terrorist elements and International Crime syndicates targeting SOUTH AFRICA at present.
THE ANC WANT TO SEE THEMSELVES AS THE MASTERS OF REGIONAL LIBERTY!
