South Africa’s Strategic Defence Procurement signed in 1999, hereafter referred to as the ‘arms deal’, was one of the most controversial acts of the country’s post-apartheid democratic government, which came to power promising to reduce military spending in favour of socio-economic development.20 Critics have pointed to the arms deal’s excessive cost, questionable utility and a host of corruption allegations that led to criminal trials fuelled by a haphazard and suspect procurement process.21 For these reasons and more, it exemplifies much about corruption in the arms trade.
