A captain in the South African National Defence Force (SANDF) has been found guilty of contravening the Protection of Information Act by the civil court in Pretoria.
The Presidency has confirmed that President Cyril Ramphosa has extended the deployment of the SANDF forces to crime-affected areas in the Western Cape. The deployment of the army to the Western Cape was scheduled to officially end on Monday.
The police together with the army have arrested 150 wanted suspects over the past few days on the Cape Flats, for a range of crimes including rape and murder as part of Operation Lockdown.
The Western Cape Community Safety Minister, Albert Fritz, has called for greater integration between the police, SANParks and the SANDF on intelligence gathering and sharing to fight crime more effectively.
