The Democratic Alliance is demanding answers from Defence and Military Veterans Minister Thandi Modise, following the death of an SANDF soldier in Mozambique.

Tebogo Edwin Radebe died on Monday during an ambush by armed insurgents in Mozambique. His remains were returned to South African on Thursday morning.

DA’s spokesperson Kobus Marais said the uncertainty about the continued deployment of South African National Defence Force (SANDF) members to Mozambique poses a threat to the army.

He added that there should be accountability surrounding the death of Tebogo and investigations have to be made on how the ambush took place.

The opposition party questioned how long SANDF soldiers will be deployed to Mozambique’s volatile Cabo Delgado.
