Nkabinda to leave

THE General Officer Commanding of the SA Army Infantry Formation in Oudtshoorn, Lt Gen Themba Nkabinde, has been appointed as the chief of Human Resources at the South African National Defence Force (SANDF) Headquarters.

Nkabinde has been the commanding officer at the Infantry Formation since 1 April 2003.

Nkabinde, who was not keen to communicate with the press, will leave the Infantry Formation after controversy about recruits running and singing in the town’s streets at night, and the death of two recruits – one in July when recruits had to practise in the icy waters of the Stompdrift Dam outside De Rust and the second in a shooting accident in September.

The Infantry School will bid Nkabinde farewell at a Battalion in Review Parade today at 16:00.

Nkabinde joined Mkhonto We Sizwe (MK) in 1977 when he left the country. He received training in Angola and served in several posts as an instructor, Chief-of-Staff and camp commander of the Barney Molokoane Training Centre in Caculama, Angola.

From 1991 to 1992 he was the deputy military attache in Tanzania and completed a senior command and staff course in India. In 1993 he was appointed as the chief of staff for the National Keeping Force/Joint Military Command Council (NPKF/ JMCC) and in 1994 he integrated into the SANDF where he served as a member of the placement board and Genesis Workgroup.

He served as the senior staff officer Africa under the director operations at Chief of Joint Operations and then as the deputy chief director Army Force Structure.

He holds a Practical and Advance Project Management Diploma from Unisa and an MBA from the University of Stellenbosch.
