Ex-SA cops wanted to compromise election results - Int. Ministry

The Interior Ministry has said one of the three South African ex-Police officers arrested in the country had in his possession, a comprehensive document on the vulnerability of some key staff of Superlock Technologies Limited, the company hired by the Electoral Commission to transmit tallied election results.

This was contained in a statement released by the Interior Ministry on Monday.

The three South Africans were arrested last week for illegally training the security detail of the flagbearer and running mate of the New Patriotic Party.
According to the Ministry, the dossier on the company and the key staff is to possibly compromise them.

“A comprehensive report on the operations of Superlock Technologies Limited (STL) and an assessment of some key staff’s vulnerability for possible compromise was retrieved from Hazis’s room. STL is the company contracted by the Electoral Commission to transmit tallied election results.

“Hazis denied authoring the document but indicated that it was given to him by Dani Isaaca, an Israeli based in South Africa. Hazis claimed he had not read the document which had been in his possession for about three (3) weeks. During interrogation it was evident that he was conversant with the content of the document,” the report added.


Three South African ex-Police officers are currently in the grips of the Bureau of National Investigation (BNI).

The three including Major Ahmed Shaik Hazis (rtd), 54; Warrant Officer Denver Dwayhe, 33, and Captain Mlungiseli Jokani, 45 have been charged with conspiracy to commit crime and unlawful training.

The Head of Nana Addo’s security team Captain (rtd) Edmund Koda and the owner of the EL-Capitano Hotel Captain (rtd) Acquah where the 3 ex-officers lodged were also arrested and have been charged but the state has dropped the charges but he was latter re-arrested and kept in BNI custody until today [Monday] when he was released on health grounds.
