The man who helped me the most with regard to advice, concerns and strategies, in dealing with the Zimbabweans was Dr Chris Jordaan. Chris Jordaan had been a chaplain in the SADF, but had moved into Military Intelligence. He passed away in 2007 from cancer.
Chris told me that he spent 20 years in Military Intelligence and that he was well known in European Intelligence circles.
He appeared often on Radio Pretoria and he had many old SADF contacts. I met some intelligence officers through him. Some had been of the rank of Major or Colonel.
A particularly interesting one was Dr Jan Du Plessis who had been South Africa’s expert on the Soviet Union. I published his prediction in 2006 for what South Africa would be like in the years to come and his predictions have come true. He said, in a nutshell, that business would take over the functions of some aspects of Govt. In SA the Police are the best example of this. The Private Security Industry basically does the policing for South Africa, especially for whites. One can also see how the failures of the Post Office has resulted in various attempts to bypass them.
