Three SA peacekeepers accused of sexual abuse in DRC

 

JOAHANNESBURG - The UN says three South African soldiers taking part in peacekeeping operations in the DRC have been accused of sexual abuse.

 

It says the South African National Defence Force (SANDF) will court-martial one soldier in the DRC where he is serving.

 

This is to show local communities that justice is being served.

 

The UN says it has received 44 allegations of sexual abuse by peacekeepers and staff in its missions this year.

 

The allegations involve more than forty minors.

 

SANDF is yet to respond to these claims.
