Government Rejects Calls For SANDF To Fight Illegal Miners, Yet Spent R2.8 Billion On Moz War

The SA government have rejected the call of deployment of SANDF to fight heavily Armed zama zama terrorists, apparently SANDF is too broke to defend South Africa. This is a pattern that has been seen in the country as well as other countries around the world, whereby they're being judged for their charitable causes that they seem to extend to other countries when their own countries are in very difficult situations economically.

So the same thing is happening here in South Africa whereby the South African National Defence Force is supposed to defend its citizens against terror, and Lesotgo nationals who are terrorizing people and who are conducting illegal mining activities.

Although Cyril Ramaphosa extended the SANDF's deployment to Mozambique for a year - at a cost of R2.8 billion, you can tell that this is a large sum of money that is being extended by the president what's the South African national Defence Force members who have went to Mozambique to assist with The Terror attacks that happening in the area but it has also left the country vulnerable to attacks from inside.

Call the South African police services have expressed they are capability and fighting crime in the country and they don't seem to want any kind of assistance from the South African national Defence Force, and perhaps the president is looking at this incident in the long-term capacity.

He was looking at the benefits that we will be able to get from a safe neighbour than having a neighbour that was colonized by terrorists who are likely to do just about anything to conduct criminal activities, and get money to survive.

So he is not really in the interests of protecting only Mozambique, but also ensuring that the country is safe in the long run this is what you might call Strategic Thinking.
