Cape Town – A mother has appeared in Cape Town Magistrate’s Court on charges of helping to smuggle parts used in manufacturing nuclear weapons from the United States to South Africa.

Marisa Sketo, 46, who sometimes uses the surname Kirsh, allegedly also helped to “export” the nuclear weapon parts illegally from South Africa to Pakistan.

Yikes! Kryton switches, probably. Israel and South Africa in bed together is not as odd as it appears. In 1979, the South Africans detonated a nuke in the Indian Ocean. It is believed to have been built with Israeli expertise at the Pelindaba Nuclear facility near Pretoria and Joberg.

    It was a match made in Heaven. In the 70’s both SA and Israel were world pariahs. SA had the uranium and Israel had the expertise..

    If Pakistan is such a great friend. Why didn’t we just sell them the switches?
