Pretoria - Four members of the South African National Defence Force were arraigned before a military court on Friday on charges relating to the landing of a private aircraft at the Waterkloof Air Force Base.
The four - Colonel Nomsa Khumalo, Lieutenant-Colonel Christo Van Zyl, Lieutenant-Colonel Christine Anderson, and a Warrant Officer Ntshisi - appeared in the court situated inside the vast Thaba Tshwane military base.
A fifth officer, identified as a Colonel Nkosi, was scheduled to appear later on Friday.
The matter was postponed to October 2.
The group face charges of breaching various dictates of the military defence code.
A chartered commercial aircraft, ferrying 270 wedding guests for the wedding of Vega Gupta, 23, and Indian-born Aakash Jahajgarhia, landed at the base in April.
The landing sparked widespread criticism and several investigations were launched.
A government investigation exonerated President Jacob Zuma and his ministers, and found that the landing was the result of “collusion by officials”. - Sapa
