This article describes the experiences and needs of former SADF/SANDF and "Homeland" (TBVC) force members known as the Statutory Forces, and combatants of the Non-Statutory Forces, like Umkhonto we Sizwe (MX), the Azanian Peoples' Liberation Army (APLA) and the Azanian Liberation Army (AZANLA).
Of these 154 were former combatants from the African National Congress (ANC) military wing MK, 50 from the Pan Africanist Congress of Azania's military wing (APLA), 15 internal Self-Defense Unit members (known as SDUs--mostly ANG and some PAC), 1 AZANLA combatant (The armed wing of the Black Consciousness Movement), 1 Inkatha VIP Protection Unit member, 43 former SADF or post 1994 SANDF members, and 7 members from the former "independent" homeland defense forces (Ciskei, Transkei, Venda, and Boputhatswana).
However, some general features emerged from the survey of former members of statutory and non-statutory forces: SADF (now SANDF), TBVC Defense Forces, MK, APLA, AZANLA, Self-Defense Units (SDUs) (4) and Inkatha Protection Units.
