Cape Town, South Africa The ex-wife of former South African Air Force EOD technician, Piet Kunneke, is speaking out about a crate of illegal military ordnance which she claims has been following her family around South Africa for the past several years. The box contained items allegedly plundered from the military during her ex-husband's two decades of service. The box has moved three different times with family, but today has found a new home with authorities.
Kunneke was finally arrested last week after reports indicated he was planning to turn the stockpile to a far-right extremist group. His ex-wife said that she did not know they were breaking any laws by storing the items as her ex-husband reportedly told her that he had a license to do so as an EOD technician.
Police confiscated the items and charged Kunneke with possession of explosives and ammunition, having more than 200 rounds of ammunition, and storage of explosives and ammunition on his property.
