The technicians have already started working in various centres of the SANDF across the country.
The arrival of the team follows a technical agreement that was signed between the two armed forces under an existing Military to Military Agreement, the Department of Defence said on Monday.
“This agreement is set to create an internal pool of technical skills in the SANDF, which will enable the Defence Force to properly service and maintain its vehicles. Since the arrival of the Cuban mechanics, there has been a markedly increased manner in the servicing of vehicles,” spokesperson Siphiwe Dlamini said.
SANDF has had numerous problems in the maintenance of vehicles at a very high cost with little benefit, according to Dlamini.
