I have been trying to register on the site but it has crashed . I then emailed them and was told to go and register in person at the nearest SADF base . I went and was met with a complete blank stare . Go figure .

Looking for the phone number as it was on sabc 2, but they do not seem to have it. Customer needs it as he too was given the run around.

There is major confusion about this, the online registration is not valid. Im not sure about other provinces but the Cape Town guys can still register at Fort Ikapa in Goodwood from the 17th till 27 of July.

The main aim of the registration is to get a database first and then try to help those that need help remember this is not only for ex SADF

Do a simple calculation, say there is a million veterans after all these years, and the Defense force need to pay the R30 000 bucks....they do not have the money at the moment to keep the chopper guys and the Mirages in the air. Where will this moola come from 8O 8O 8O 8O

They can't even buy Tyres!!! Let alone cracked windshields that being repaired!!

SADF has reported it as a scam and warned all people not to submit any personal details for any registration.
There is no process in place for any registration!!
I never received any imbursement after 7 years of service as a Flight Sergeant in the SADF.

If this is the case, then very few people will be able to prove legitimacy. Sounds like the "Land Claims days" Or is it "Political Survival" :?: :?:
