The Past Week in Defence #11 (6 June – 12 June)


In this week’s edition, on the continent we look at Egypt’s attempts to acquire FREMM frigates from Italy and give an update on the delivery of L-39NG jets to Senegal. And in SANDF news we look at the continued investigation into the death of Collins Khosa at the hands of police and soldiers, the signing of the new hydrographic bill into law, progress with Projects Hotel and Biro, a South African naval exercise underway in Richards Bay, more cases of coronavirus being reported in the SANDF, the surgeon general being caught with an unlicensed firearm, 15 Squadron moving to King Shaka International Airport, Armscor positioning Alkantpan for unmanned aerial vehicle testing, and Malutsa making progress in delivering water purification systems to the SANDF.
