The SANDF says there are fake advertisements circulating on social media for the recruitment of new members for Military Skills Development System.

The South African National Defence Force (SANDF) on Tuesday warned of false advertisements circulating on social media calling for the recruitment of new members for Military Skills Development System.

“The SANDF has not issued any advertisement with regard to the recruitment of new members yet,” said a statement issued by the Government Communications (GCIS) on behalf of the department of defence.

GCIS said genuine advertisement for 2018 SANDF recruitment will be published in the Sunday newspapers on 21 January 2018 and in a national daily newspaper the next day.

The terse statement said the SANDF “neither sells application forms nor use recruitment agencies”. For more information members of the public can contact Lieutenant-Colonel Kenanao Lobelo  on (012) 339 5626 or Lieutenant-Colonel Rudi Oesthuizen on (012) 339 5440.
