M. Volokhai - The Conflict in Cabo Delgado and South Africa’s Capability of Handling It

M. Volokhai - The Conflict in Cabo Delgado and South Africa’s Capability of Handling It

With the fall of Apartheid and the end of the Natal Civil War in 1994, South Africa entered a period of complex and multidimensional changes related to its Defence Force and military strategy. Under the de Klerk administration, the country started to make significant shifts in its policy towards the neighbours and the whole continent. A real breakthrough was the Namibian independence and the end of the long-lasting Border War. However, this remarkable achievement was not the end of the story, as the South African government started to take relatively frequently part in the peacekeeping operations either on the local or a more significant, regional scale. In this analysis, the perspective of allegedly a more significant interference of South Africa in the security affairs of Mozambique in its northern province of Cabo Delgado is discussed.
