This is more like it... let's hope it is correct, or even possible, given the parlous run down of the South African military, once a potent force, in the decades since 1994.

SA authorises largest SANDF troop deployment since 1994
On Wednesday night Defence Minister Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula announced that the military will be providing a surge of troops, bringing the total deployment in trouble spots up to 25,000. Mapisa-Nqakula stressed that the President has assured the Department of Defence not to worry about the money, although even just finding the personnel for such a large deployment will be a monumental task. Cooks, clerks, technicians, perhaps... If the number is even close to 25,000, the SA National Defence Force may well be providing the security net that KZN and Gauteng has lacked until now.

Best just to stand back and let the blicks get on with it.

Africa is a true shithole. For a period, due the efforts of a bunch of civilised Europeans, it had some decent patches, but those days are mainly over.

What Africa really needs is a huge fence built around it.

To keep the fcukers in.
