MEDIA STATEMENT BY THE SA NATIONAL DEFENCE UNION

SANDU HQ, Pretoria, Monday 20 November 2017


REACTION TO THE UNLAWFUL MILITARY RESERVE CALL-UP OF BRIAN MOLEFE


The news that Brian Molefe, an honorary colonel in the SANDF reserve, has been called up for active duty into the SANDF, is perplexing, to say the least.

An honorary colonel of the SANDF Reserve is not, by law eligible, for call-up into active duty.

A valid call-up into active duty requires the incumbent to have a substantive military rank, obtained through military training, and the appropriate qualification(s). It also requires that the officer holds a commissioned rank. Molefe meets none of these requirements.

Molefe's call up is thus unlawful and fraudulent.

It is further outrageous that his pay has been back dated to a date when he was, in fact, not even on active duty, an act which in itself constitutes a separate count of fraud.

It is incredulous that Molefe is involved in budgetary affairs of the SANDF, which inevitably provides him access to classified information, when he holds no security classification as is required by the Defence Act.

Clearly some elements at managerial level in the SA Army have decided to show benevolence to Molefe in what is nothing else but a jobs-for-pals scandal. The Chief of the SA Army is hereby challenged to show the legality of Molefe's call-up.

SANDU will file criminal charges this coming week against Molefe and further demand that his call-up be withdrawn immediately, failing which it will take the necessary legal action.

Molefe must be brought to book together with whoever in the military aided this fraud and he must pay back the salary he received.

Brian Molefe is a fake officer who must not expect to be treated as a real one by SANDF members.

There are thousands of qualified Reserve Force members, not called up for active service due to budgetary constraints within the SA Army, yet the same Army has no problem appointing a person illegally at R57 000 per month.
