The work session is currently underway at Rhemardo Holiday Resort which is nestled at Mookhopong in the province of peace popularly known as Limpopo, and will come to a screeching halt on Friday, the 27th of January 2023.

This gathering was preceded by three workshops which took place in the 2022 calendar year. The three workshops were held at Rhemardo, the SA Army Combat Training Centre and Bloemfontein, respectively. The highest range of exalted thoughts was required in tackling various issues pertaining to the management of assets.

Presentations and deliberations on accountability matters are also a significant necessity during the workshop.

At the end of the workshop, the leadership of the SA Army must understand the status of Asset Management and the actions required in order to make an improvement. Before the workshop comes to an end, Formations and Brigades will be afforded an opportunity to present their own portfolios in order to convince the Chief Army of their rectifications to address identified non-compliance issues.

The Chief of the South African Army, Lieutenant General Lawrence Khulekani Mbatha, delivered his opening remarks. He commended the members of the landward force for having ended the 2022 calendar year on a high note, particularly when we took cognisant of the fact that the SA Army delivered its flagship annual Exercise, VUK‘UHLOME, with evangelical zeal.

The exercise, which saw more than 13 000 members of the SA Army descending at the SA Army Combat Training Centre in the Northern Cape, is still lingering on many people’s lips. Another feather on the SA Army’s cap in the 2022 Financial Year was its community outreach project which was conducted in Kimberley in the Northern Cape.

The South African Army gave Seochoareng a home for the elderly and Mr Peter Van Wyk (Oom Soldaat), a Second World War Military veteran’s house, a facelift.

The project also dominated national conversations as it received large coverage on various media platforms. The Chief of the SA Army also urged the members in attendance to relentlessly focus on the tasks that lie ahead in this new calendar year and tackle all the challenges with renewed vigour and evangelical zeal.

Before the days’ proceedings could be wrapped up, Mr Angel Ramphele and Ms Phunyezwa Kainja from the SA Army Foundation delivered a presentation which was premised on the South African National Defence Force Group Life Insurance Scheme.
