The South African military is training 4 500 recruits in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), in a bid to bolster the country's military force.
However, South African National Defence Force is allegedly concerned that the new troops may turn on their trainers as happened in the Central African Republic in 2013 (CAR).
Defence Analyst, Helmoed Heitman on Monday said the military training and threats in the respective countries are different.
Listen to the full conversation, with Ray White standing in, on The Midday Report:
The risk in the DRC seems to be more similar than what happened in Afghanistan, where recruits could turn hostile and attack government or the training team. Although, I wouldn't expect an attack on the instructors seeing as SANDF is neutral.— Helmoed Heitman, Defence Analyst,
