Johannesburg - A soldier killed during an operation in the Kruger National Park was not shot at, the SA National Defence Force said on Tuesday.
“It is not clear whether he shot himself accidentally or he committed suicide. He was not shot at,” said Brig-Gen Xolani Mabanga.
Private Thabiso Zulu, of Regiment East Rand, was deployed on Sunday with 2 SA Infantry Battalion when he was killed while on duty during Operation Corona in the Kruger.
It is a border patrol operation.
A board of inquiry has been convened to investigate the shooting.
