Parliament waiting to hear from President Ramaphosa regarding SANDF deployment to Mozambique

The chairperson of the joint committee on defense, Cyril Xaba, says they expect to hear from President Cyril Ramaphosa this week, regarding the deployment of South African National Defense Force personnel to Mozambique.

Last week, the Presidency announced that soldiers were being deployed to Palma to secure the safety of South Africans after ISIS linked insurgents killed scores of people.

One South African was among those who lost their lives. In line with the Constitution, the President should promptly inform Parliament of all details of a deployment.
