JOHANNESBURG - Defence Minister Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula on Thursday said despite the incident in which SA National Defence Force (SANDF) deployed to the Mozambique border exchanged gunfire with police from the neighbouring state, the two nations continue to enjoy close cooperation.
Speaking to journalists in Pretoria on the sidelines of a Women’s Day Parade, Mapisa-Nqakula said a probe into the shooting had been concluded but she could not divulge the findings before they were presented to President Cyril Ramaphosa.
“The report is out ... of the investigation that was conducted by our teams, working together with the Mozambicans. However, I am not able to divulge to you the details of the report.
"The report has not been handed over to the Commander-In-Chief [Ramaphosa],” Mapisa-Nqakula said.
“However, I need to assure you that we continue to work together with the Mozambicans.
