We have no idea how bad the SSA robberies are

South Africa's State Security Agency (SSA) has suffered constant looting, theft, and fraud over the years, DA Shadow Minister of State Security Dianne Kohler Barnard said.

"Following a recent humiliating robbery in which sensitive documents and an undisclosed amount of money were reportedly stolen from the State Security Agency (SSA) offices in Pretoria – sources have reliably informed the Democratic Alliance (DA) that there have been many more break-ins at the SSA than had previously been reported," Kohler Barnard said.

Seeing as they provide little intelligence and/or security they ought to be forced to operate without black ops budgets. Even crime intelligence use theirs as a slush fund for their brass.

Sound like VBS all over again.

What does SSA even do?

Agreed, these are 'vehicles' used to loot. But the majority are OK with this, so business as usual. It won't change anytime soon, because Africa is gonna do what they excel at. #FcukThePoor #BlameJan

SSA will never implement proper security measures.

The SSA has got a long way to go both domestically and internationally to salvage its damaged reputation, and these alleged incidents of theft are more bed publicity that the SSA cannot afford.
That appears to be a direct sic quote.

nice spin,...that the DA laps up and runs with ....what they nor their reliable sources are not stating..., how his little parallel network is being dismantled and break ins and theft - acts of desperation of those that no longer have access to the old "company credit card"

The security guards who were meant to be protecting the safe were reportedly not stationed at their post at the time of the robbery

Oooh wow.
