Umbutho wezokuvikela kuleli i-South African National Defence Force (i-SANDF) idalule ukuthi ngeke ikwazi ukubiyela isikhungo samasosha e-Eastern Cape.

Lokhu kuza ngemuva kokuthi ngesonto eledlule kudalulwe ukuthi umbutho ngeke ukwazi ukuthengela amasosha amabhuzu, kodwa izinkinga zezimali ze-SANDF zijule kakhulu kunalokho.

Ukwanda kosongo lwezakhamizi sekuqubule imibuzo yokuthi ngabe amasosha angakwazi yini ukuvikela hhayi isikhungo sawo kuphela, kodwa neNingizimu Afrika yonkana.

Isikole se-Special Forces ePitoli kusolwa ukuthi sihlaselwe ngabahlali basemijondolo abantshontshe izintambo zikagesi baxhuma amapayipi amanzi esikole ngokungemthetho.

Isikhungo samasosha eMakhanda, e-Eastern Cape, asibiyelwanga ngenxa yokweba endaweni – njengoba nalo ucingo lokubiyela kunzima ukulithola ngoba umbutho awunamali.

Kubikwa ukuthi izakhamizi zigqekeze i-South African Infantry Battalion eMakhanda zeba amabhomu esandla kanye nezinye izikhali, ngokusho kukaGuy Martin, umhleli we-Defence Web.

“I-SANDF inemali encane kakhulu, ukuncishiswa kwesabelomali kuyenze yazabalaza ukugcina izinto ezifana nocingo oluzungeze amayunithi abo, njengaseMakhanda, ukunakekela kanye nezinsizakusebenza,” kusho uMartin etshela i-CapeTalk.

“Akukhuthazi ukwethenjwa kombutho wezokuvikela uma ungakwazi nokuvikela isikhungo sawo.”

UMartin uthe ucingo olusesikhungweni saseMakhanda selususiwe ngaphandle kwemiphumela.

“Ngale kokuthi lokhu kuvula indlela yabantu abangena bantshontshe izinsiza eziningi nezinto kodwa kuphinde kube yingozi kulabo abahlala endaweni,” usho kanje.

I-South African National Defence Union ithe ukwehliswa kwesabelomali kuvimbela amasosha ukuthi enze imisebenzi yawo.

“Uma umuntu engakunakekeli futhi enemali eyanele yokuthola izingxenye zendiza yakho, izingxenye zethangi lakho, izingxenye zemoto yakho, kuba nzima embuthweni,” kusho uPikkie Greeff wenyunyana.
