Commentary: Dangerous exposure in Gigaba sex scandal

Dear Editor

The article relating to Mr Gigaba refers to State Security agents possibly being responsible for leaking the sex video into public domain.

As a former member of the State Security Agency, I would not at all be surprised by this statement.  I also agree that people should be more worried about what is going on behind the scenes our State Security Agency.

During my time working there, I came to see the State Security Agency somewhat as a “mind-controlled community” where lawlessness and criminal activities are allowed to flourish.  

No doubt there are a lot of good people there but they are all too scared to speak out against the dark agendas inside.   Speaking out or reporting these evils are not allowed, or the Agency will use its weapons (The Intelligence Laws) against you.  The Constitution means very little inside the Agency. 

The State Security Agency systematically uses unconstitutional and illegal measures to terrorise employees to prevent them from becoming whistleblowers (speaking from experience). 

The “veil of secrecy”  is only there to hide these activities and shield the people involved in such practices. The State Security Agency has a system of personal destruction in place to try and ruin those who try to blow the whistle, or even intend to blow the whistle on wrongdoing.

You are very wise to wonder who’s interests the State Security Agents are serving, Mr Editor. I am wondering, who allowed for the State Security Agency to function in this manner in the first place?

Let's hope that more light will shine in the shadows and more will come forth eventually with their own information about State Security abuse and deceit.
