Security analyst Adam Bonaa has slammed the recruitment of unqualified persons as officers of the National Security.
He noted that “recruitment by protocol” was the reason why many of these officers have misplaced loyalties.
Mr. Bonaa further bemoaned the recruitment of party loyalists into the National Security, insisting some of them are illiterates who can’t even communicate.
Go to the ports they are there everywhere they are there. Even the national security operatives operating at the port they can’t even communicate well,” he said on 3FM.
“It will be difficult to stop recruitment by protocol into those agencies. So long as unemployment is high and Godfatherism is still high somebody must take you there.
“If these people are trained and their loyalty is to the state but not the people who employed them into the organization then we will get somewhere. My point is these people must be given proper nationalistic training not people who are party loyalists.”
The National Security has come under the spotlight in recent weeks following several reports regarding abuse of power by officers.
