Quick note by Marc Aupiais
Zuma has claimed we are keeping the world cup police.
This is good, especially as France helped train them. DefenceWeb has meanwhile reported that the government is soon expected to implement the expected raises in military salaries, a good thing given the alleged conspiracy to kidnap our defence minister some time ago.
The South African police have always been severely under staffed, says France 24. Our army also is aging and under resourced, but the pay rise and move to protect our boarders should help our military improve.
