Former National Security boss, Brigadier General Nunoo Mensah, has described as unnecessary, the hiring of three South African ex-policemen to train bodyguards for the New Patriotic Party.
He contended there were capable security experts in the country who could offer such training as opposed to bringing into the country expatriates.
“I think we should have faith in ourselves and believe in ourselves, and I know we are capable of training our own, rather than bring in South Africans to come and train us, which I find totally unnecessary," he said on 3FM 92.7 Thursday morning.
He said there is nothing that the expatriate can do which our local experts cannot do saying "“I sit down here, and I don’t know what a white man can do that I can’t so why do we create the impression that we don’t believe in ourselves."
Mr. Nunoo Mensah recalled how Ghana's first president, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, marshaled Ghanaians to help Zimbabwe and others fight their wars, adding "so if we could do these things on our own some years back, then I don’t see the need for us to bring in foreigners to assist us.”
The three South African - 54-year-old Major Ahmed Shaik Hazis (Rtd.), 39-year–old WO/ Denver Dwayhe Naidu (Rtd.) and 45-year-old Captain Mlungiseleli Jokani (Rtd.), were picked up on Sunday, March 20, 2016 at El Capitano Hotel in Agona Duakwa in the Central Region have since last Tuesday, been deported.
