South Africa’s Defence Minister Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula wants more money to defend the country’s borders.
She’s also appealing to the Public Works Department to help troops fulfil their duties.
The Minister on Wednesday visited the country’s border with Mozambique to see the problems for herself. She visited South African Defence Force members deployed under Operation Corona in Mpumalanga. The operation is aimed at combating cross-border criminal activities, such as drug smuggling, human trafficking and vehicle theft.
She met with soldiers and residents of a small community in Mpumalanga living alongside the border.Source: eNCA / SABC
