HAVANA, May 24 Cuba received almost USD 700 million from the South African Department of Defense and Military Veterans (DDMV) for repairing military equipment,
according to a complaint on its News 24 website. Thanks to the Thusano project, the Island received some 714,121,460 dollars, which represents one billion South African Rand.
Kobus Marais, South African Defense spokesman, said he did not understand the reasons why the Government of Cuba was hired for a job that local contractors can do for a lower price. “The local defence industry is caught in a spiral of death and job loss,” he said.
