Executive Summary
The deaths of 34 miners at the Marikana platinum mine northwest of Johannesburg in August 2012 during a
protest over pay highlighted the risk to South African stability posed by such socio-economic issues as
income inequality, not to mention the ability of the security services to deal proportionately with mass
unrest. For the time being, the ruling African National Congress (ANC) appears capable of keeping a lid on
these national tensions. However, this cannot be taken for granted in the long term.
Socio-economic priorities mean that the government is unlikely to deliver large funding increases to the
South African National Defence Force (SANDF). The government has already revealed defence spending
plans for the next three years which envisage some growth in the defence budget. However, these increases
are not nearly enough to enable the SANDF to meet its procurement and personnel targets, analysts are
warning.
