The Democratic Alliance today said the Chairperson of the Joint Standing Committee Jerome Maake has failed to reply to three separate requests for a special hearing on the South African National Defence Force deployment in the Democratic Republic of Congo. 

DA MP of Defence and Military Veterans David Maynier said Parliament must not be allowed to fail the SANDF soldiers who have been deployed to the DRC. 

Maynier said the DA`s request seems to have fallen on deaf ears in Parliament and it is imperative for the SANDF Chief provide a detailed briefing to the joint committee on the deployment of troops in the DRC.

He added that Parliament must ensure that the SANDF are properly trained to carry out their work in the DRC.
