Brian Molefe's remuneration above board, claims SANDF

The SA National Defence Force (SANDF) has confirmed that Brian Molefe was regarded as a reserve force member and was remunerated.

This was in reaction to a report by City Press, in which it was stated that Molefe had earned R57,000 a month since August as a military colonel, despite having no military background. The SANDF neither confirmed nor denied the salary cited, but said Molefe was part of a specialist group of people who were called up for specific duties over a short-term period, as per the requirements of the defence force.

It explained that Molefe was appointed both as a reserve force member and an honorary colonel of one of the reserve force regiments, adding that the latter dated back to the time when he was CEO of the Public Investment Corporation. He had successfully attended the obligatory training required for an official reserve force appointment, the SANDF said and added that in the case of his duties as an honorary colonel, “Molefe may not, and does not, receive remuneration.”
