LETTER: SA arming Middle East
In Yemen I encountered a Denel team on an arms trade mission
In his column, Recession turns up heat on Ramaphosa (September 7), Anthony Butler references Rheinmetall Denel Munition’s alleged supply of weapons to the Saudi-led aggression in Yemen and possible war crimes.
This is hardly a surprise. When I was working in Sanaa some years ago, I encountered a Denel team on an arms trade mission. SA has a long history of trying to sell arms into the volatile Middle East that dates back to the apartheid-era links to Israel and the development of nuclear weapons.
