SA soldiers robbed in South Sudan

Johannesburg - A group of South African soldiers was robbed in South Sudan during a peacekeeping mission, the South African Navy said on Thursday.

“There was no loss of life, but some of their equipment was taken away from them,” Captain Jaco Theunissen told reporters.

He said the troops were on a convoy when they were ambushed on Saturday.

Theunissen was unable to say how many troops were there at the time, and what sort of equipment was stolen.

“We don't want to speculate. We are just waiting for more information from the investigation team.”
