CASA wanted it back, willing to "swop" it for a newer model but SAAF declined.

So who is the owner now, presume the SAAF sold it?

As far as I know ZU-SOO was never part of the SAAF inventory, It is an ex Botswana Defence Force aircraft.

Perhaps confusing it with the SAAF Casa CN235 which was from the Bophuthatswana Defence Force Air Wing - Tail number 8026.

That was the prototype CN235

To quote www.saairforce.co.za :

"The SAAF CN235 (tail number 8026) was the original prototype built by Casa. It first saw service in SA with the now defunct Bophuthatswana Defence Force Air Wing with tail number T330 in 1991. It became part of the SAAF inventory in 1994 when the SANDF was brought into being.

The aircraft was retired form service in late 2011."

I think it is now at the Zwartkop SAAF Museum.

The Bop.Air Force/SAAF CN235 was indeed the prototype with serial number 001.
ZU-SOO 's serial number is 008.
