South African Security Services failed to warn about the Coronavirus

Every year South African tax payers spend billions of rands on our intelligence agencies to protect the State from foreign threats of all shapes. From every measure South Africa’s intelligence agencies have not risen up to the ongoing social and economic calamity emanating from Covid-19. Worse still, the thinking and practices of the state security establishment are an obstacle to what is required to arrest the global pandemic.

OPEN LETTER TO THE UN, US, UK: ON IMPENDING GENOCIDE IN NIGERIA

DANGOTE IS COMPLICIT
But under the cover of the COVID 19 lock-down, thousands of armed men between the ages of 18 and 35 years were being systematically transported across the length of Nigeria, over 1,000 kilometers from Northern Nigeria to occupy South East Nigeria, including other Southern parts of Nigeria.

They came hidden amidst bags of cement, inside oil tankers. They also came mixed with sack and sacks of beans, tomatoes and onions, while others simply boarded commercial vehicles and long distance trucks belonging to Dangote industries. The federal government’s claim of moving food from Northern Nigeria to the South of Nigeria turned out a cover for those who were moving arms and armed men into the South Eastern hinterland.

WE ARE UNDER ATTACK BY TERRORISTS AND INVADERS. DEFEND YOURSELVES

SELF DEFENSE IS THE FIRST LAW OF NATURE

A calamity of mammoth proportion is unfolding before us, our homeland and families soon would be invaded and violated; yet most of the so called political leaders seem to just sit and watch without offering any resistance or at least raise a protest against the acquiescence of the President of Nigeria.

We actually wonder what are we to do?

As if under some sort of spell, we happily engage in inconsequential arguements on various social media platforms as a convenient excuse for our cowardice.

We continue to pretend that it will fizzle out on its own, while others simply want to mentally wish away the obvious.

Kindly note that these imminent calamities are part of a script, which was written years ago to be played out today.

It is called planning, strategy, and execution.

We have, with shock, been following the debates since the Covid 19 lockdown, the dramatic exportation of fulani trained militias disguised as vagrants from the North to the Middle Belt and the South of Nigeria; and the unimaginable consequences that would flow therefrom.

To wait for these fulani militias to begin an onslaught that we can prevented is unconscionable.
