The Western Cape government has welcomed the extension of the deployment of the South African National Defence Force (SANDF) to crime-ridden areas of the province until March 31, 2020.
The SANDF has confirmed that soldiers will not be deployed to gang-ridden areas on the Cape Flats on Friday.
The Police Minister Bheki Cele says areas on the Cape Flats have been completely sealed off during the massive joint operation which is currently under way between the South African National Defence Force and the police.
A Major in the South African National Defence Force (SANDF) has appeared before the Court of Military Justice at the Castle of Good Hope in Cape Town, for refusing to take off her religious head scarf.
Several Cape Town streets were closed to traffic on Tuesday night as members of the South African National Defence Force (SANDF) started their rehearsal for the State Of the Nation Address.
