Note by Marc Aupiais

Local press, is announcing that the release of a number of alleged South African mercenaries, by the government of Equatorial Guinea, is due to President Jacob Zuma (ANC: African National Congress) making it happen.

That the Presidency says the foreign government saw this a a gesture of good faith to South Africa, seems to lend credibility to these claims. The mercenaries were arrested when their plane landed in Zimbabwe, allegedly on South African intelligence, prior an alleged coup plot could be inacted, to take control of the north African state:

The following will be a quotation of a press release from the Office of the Presidency of the Republic of South Africa:

"The visit by President Zuma coincided with the release by the government of Equatorial Guinea of four South Africans imprisoned in the country for their part in an attempted coup in 2004. The government of Equatorial Guinea has indicated that this was a gesture of goodwill related to the visit."
