SOUTH AFRICA’S ROLE ARMS SALES FOR USE IN YEMEN

On 3 March, an article in the Daily Maverick said that a new report claims that weapons produced in South Africa are awash in Yemen and being used by numerous parties in that war.  It says that South African arms companies, including Rheinmetall Denel Munition (RDM), have profited from the sale of weapons to parties central to the conflict.  It is said that since 2015 South African arms companies exported weapons worth R2.81-billion to Saudi Arabia, and weapons worth R4.74-billion to the UAE – and both countries are involved in the conflict.
