South African National Defence Force In The DRC: Interview

South Africa is notoriously inward-looking and self-involved and has, as such, not paid a lot of attention either to the continent's ongoing conflicts or what the South African National Defence Force (SANDF) has been up to over the last few years. In 2012, however, the country got a wake-up call in the CAR (see here) and the media suddenly began questioning what South African soldiers were doing in central Africa. This questioning and unease has continued as South Africa has sent troops off to be part of the Force Intervention Brigade in the DRC.

This TV interview with African Defence Review, aired last night on eNCA talks to the position and role of the SANDF in the DRC.

Also, African Defence Review very much worth following here.
