Former state security agents close to ex-President Jacob Zuma are being investigated for stoking unrest in Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal.

The former head of the State Security Agency’s special operations unit, Thulani Dlomo, has been identified as a prime suspect, according to News24.

Dlomo operated the unit as Zuma’s private militia, the Zondo Commission heard earlier this year.

He was fired from the SSA in 2019 amid numerous corruption allegations against him.

The coordinated nature of the unrest… it’s not as sporadic as one assumes…

The special ops unit was extremely well-financed by state resources… and interested purely to serve at the behest of the former president…

The orchestrators of this unrest know how to mobilise… The internal shenanigans within the ANC… have spilled over and affected the lives and livelihoods of hundreds of thousands of people.

The controversial former head of the State Security Agency’s (SSA) rogue special operations unit, Thulani Dlomo, has been identified as a prime suspect being investigated for fomenting violent unrest in KwaZulu-Natal following the arrest of former president Jacob Zuma.

News24 can reveal, from information confirmed by three independent and highly placed sources, that intelligence officials told the police Dlomo was a key person of interest in instigating the unrest that has rocked South Africa, led to the death of at least 45 citizens and destroyed businesses and jobs worth hundreds of millions of rands.
