sandf thumb medium90 89TimesLIVE reports that the military has not taken kindly to an EFF student leader who appeared on television on Monday wearing a South African National Defence Force (SANDF) camouflage shirt and a red beret.  

Aseza Mayaphi, EFF student command secretary at the University of the Western Cape, was interviewed by eNCA wearing the outfit.  The SANDF said in a statement that anyone who was not a member of the army but wore its uniform was committing an offence and would be prosecuted.  Noting that the “young man” who was interviewed on television was "not a SANDF member", the force further reiterated that “wearing the SANDF uniform when you are not a SANDF member is a punishable offence and anyone who is caught committing this illegal act will be prosecuted.”
