Air force chief to brief Parliament
Cape Town - Air force chief Lieutenant General Carlo Gagiano is expected to brief the joint standing committee on defence in Parliament on Thursday about problems facing the SA Air Force (SAAF).
He would also present a report back to the committee on progress made in resolving these issues.
The issues could include a possible fuel shortage.
The SA National Defence Force (SANDF) reportedly owes R26m to its fuel supplier KwaZulu-Natal Oils.
SANDF's operational needs could be affected by the resultant fuel shortages.
The problem has reportedly such critical proportions that the defence department requested the Treasury to intervene.
