EXCLUSIVE: Shadowy ring of spies who reported directly to Zuma still active | CowansView
The State Security Agency's controversial Special Operations Unit, previously headed up by the equally controversial Thulani Dlomo, reported directly to former president Jacob Zuma , according to the Inspector General of Intelligence.
The SOU's apparent allegiance to the former president, contrary to established reporting structures, is among several explosive disclosures made to Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane by the IGI, Setlhomamaturu Dintwe, during a January 31 meeting.
The IGI identified 186 agents who were recruited by the SOU but who were not permanent SSA employees.
Sensitive and secret SSA documents were removed or destroyed following the departure of Dlomo and former SSA director-general Arthur Fraser from the SOU.
Mkhwebane was seemingly looking for ways to legitimise the controversial IGI report related to SARS, which was anonymously delivered to her office. Legally, she is not allowed to be in possession of the report.
Mkhwebane pushes the issue, referring to a letter she wrote to the IGI.
"The one we're dealing with now deals primarily with the Special Operations Unit…" Govender says.
The discussion then turned to who could lodge a complaint with the IGI regarding the SARS investigative unit, with Mkhwebane suggesting her office would do so, saying she had proof"that intelligence activity is still happening".
According to the transcript, the SSA had a"duplicate" internal register for these operatives which Dintwe later refers to as a"parallel internal structure".
Govender could not provide detailed comment when approached by News24, saying the transcripts were incomplete. The SSA refused to comment citing"sensitivity around operational matter[s]".Read more: News24
