The South African National Defence  Force (SANDF) has confirmed the deployment in assisting police to help control violent protests in parts of KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng.

SANDF spokesperson, Mafi Mgobozi says the duration and number of deploying soldiers will be determined based on the assessment of the situation on the ground by the relevent law enforcement agencies and they will start immediately.

This follows an illegal protest whereby six people have reportedly died calling for the release of former President Jacob Zuma from prison and atleast 219 people have been arrested according to National Joint Operational and Intelligence Structure.

Furthermore, Mgobozi says the soldiers will be providing safety and safe environment for members of the South African Police Services (SAPS) and other law enforcement agencies whilst they carry out their constitutionally mandaded law and order duties.
