About Me

My photo
I saw active service in conventional, clandestine and covert units of the South African Defence Force. I was the founder of the Private Military Company (PMC) Executive Outcomes in 1989 and its chairman until I left in 1997. Until its closure in 1998, EO operated primarily in Africa helping African governments that had been abandoned by the West and were facing threats from insurgencies, terrorism and organised crime. EO also operated in South America and the Far East. I believe that only Africans (Black and White) can truly solve Africa’s problems. I was appointed Chairman of STTEP International in 2009 and also lecture at military colleges and universities in Africa on defence, intelligence and security issues. Prior to the STTEP International appointment, I served as an independent politico-military advisor to several African governments. Until recently, I was a contributing editor to The Counter Terrorist magazine. All comments in line with the topics on this blog are welcome. As I consider this to be a serious look at military and security matters, foul language and political or religious debates will not be entertained on this blog.

POLITICO-SECURITY ADVICE

Thanks to numerous high-level contacts on the continent, I have been able to accurately predict the current scenarios in Libya, Central African Republic, Mali, South Sudan and other African countries - prior to these problems manifesting themselves. 
  
I have now set-up a private consultancy to provide confidential advice to governments and corporations on political, security and investment climates in African countries.

This advice focuses on matters as diverse as national strategies and national security strategies, business strategies, market research, planning, management, market penetration and investment security.


Interested parties can contact me via my blog.

And why not sir? A man must do what he is good at! I am certain based upon your experience you are an impartial asset to these beleaguered nations. Been quite busy sir, and I must search your blog as you had posted a recommended reading list and there were some selections that I had missed. Take care Mr. Barlow

Dear Eeben:

Will you be gathering up as many of your former employees as you can with experience in these fields to work for your new company?

Good Evening Sir. My name is Julio Mejia from Colombia,right now I work for the Colombian Army and I'm pursuing my master degree on security and conflict, my thesis on the Private Security Companies topic. I really admire your work, I think you demonstrated that the support of private companies sometimes is necesary and can improve the stability of a country.

If it is possible I would like to have the opportunity to do an interview may be through e mail or may be by Skype.

My personal e-mail is juliomej49@gmail.com

Thank you very much for reading my comment.

It is not a new company GCU but something I have been asked to assist with on a personal level.
Where necessary I shall use those men who can make a positive contribution.

Thanks for your mail, Julio.
Unfortunately, due to work commitments, I find I really do not have much time to assist students.
I wish you the best with your studies.
Rgds,

Please send me your email address Leonard - I shall not post it on the blog.
I would like to take a peek at what you have done and give you my opinion.

Thanks for your comment Zeno Popa.
However, I do not discuss either myself or EO. I learnt, sadly, that there is a tendency to twist information to suit agendas. I am not preared to go down that road again.

Eeben
