South Africa Police Foils ‘Coup Plot’

The South African Police say they have arrested a suspected “Coup Plotter” for planning to assassinate nearly 19 people, including government ministers, officials of state-owned firms and prominent citizens.

The 23-year-old man was arrested on Wednesday following undercover operations in the capital, Pretoria, and the main Commercial City, Johannesburg.

The suspect, a founding member of the Anti-State Capture Death Squad Alliance (ASCDSA), was arrested while trying to explain to donors how the assassination of state capture beneficiaries was going to be carried out by the undercover coup plot snipers.
