I actually agree with you that the article is a bit all over the place. Not to slight the author, suspect it's been heavily tampered with by Mixmag in order to make it publishable. Annabel was touting for media lawyers earlier in the week and, to my knowledge, her article was put out to tender

I think overall it makes for grim reading. Even if you want to put the assault allegations to one side, it paints an image of a man utterly consumed by his own ego

Agreed. And if this was indeed his usual behaviour, this article might actually attract more people telling their stories.

This article is a bit of a mess imho.

While some stories are shocking to read and off course deserve to be published...

Others are way too much hearsay or about people apparently blacking out from drugs (never seen someone black out from pink powder/2cb btw) and waking up naked and assume they are raped.

Also lacks some critical questions to the accuser why they come out only now with these stories...why no police etc....but ok.
f***ing hell ... if even a tenth of this is true it shows him as evil and deranged and yet again your first thought is “why no police” i.e “the victims are lying” ... I still say because people like you sow the element of doubt in victims stories is why people don’t go to the police .. I just do not get it

There's a difference with the pink powder in Columbia Tucibi than 2cb...

Nah my first thought was that there are stories in that article that deserve to be published and definitely show him as evil.

My second thought was that the article is a mess with a few lousy 'hearsay' stories or 'I once woke up naked in Morillo's place so I must be raped too'...I would have left them out of it. That's what I was saying.

Yes very similar if not identical, but they never get any less shocking for me. These places can break the hardest hearts I think.

She has some very good videos on her site.

This photo on her homepage sums up working with African soldiers for me:

1 - 100% alert bloke. Thousand yard stare all day. Family all dead. Probably raised as a boy soldier. Hardship is all he knows. Will kill as easily as he will enjoy smoking a cigarette. Always looking for the fight. This is a way of life for him. Happy to die a warrior.

2 - The 'How fcuk did I get here' bloke that is generally clueless every day and can just about put his boots on and carry a rifle. Usually wears a Man U or an Arsenal footy top under his fatigues. Will chase dogs and giggle when he is meant to be on patrol. No 1 hates him.

3 - Volatile soviet era weaponry. Or worse, made in China. Detonates when it feels like it. Here looks like an anti tank grenade. Bought from the cheapest arms dealer the govt could source, after lying in a depot for possibly decades. Sometimes see African soldiers using them as a club to beat back gangs of inquisitive children.

4 - 'Happy as fcuk bloke' absolutely nothing ever gets him down. Always having a good day and always smiling no matter what. Knows a song he can sing for every situation or scenario. Is devoutly religious. No 1 hates him also. No 2 relies and dotes on him.

5 - Soviet made PKM. Hellish weapon. Although carrying the ammo linked around the body gets it dirty and causes the weapon to jam. Usually when you need it most. There is never a convenient time to have stoppage. No 1 doesn't really care. He just wants to look like a one man war machine.

6 - Made in China body armour. Unable to stop the even the smallest calibre small arms. Might as well be wearing a woolly jumper. No 1 will wear it as a status symbol. No 2 cant find his. No 4 has decorated his with bright paint.

7 - Westerner. Amongst possibly the most dangerous situation in their life so far and armed only with a sense of adventure and overt optimism. Have to respect their bravery and zeal. No 1 will lay down his life for her. No 2 will ask her a million daft questions every day. No 4 wants his photo with her every day.

8 - The UN in every corner of the place. Some good, some bad.

A shame for that bloke 😑 A heavy price is paid.

One thing that impressed me out there mate was the brotherhood all African soldiers appear to have. Most African nations had a contingent in country and they were very happy to be serving and doing their bit to help stop the violence and killing.

Stand out nation for me were the Rwandans. They had seen their own brutal genocide and they have came a very long way since those dark times, they felt duty bound to assist in South Sudan and truly believed in the work they were doing.

A sub-unit from my regiment had actually served in Rwanda in 1994 and won the Wilkinson Sword of Peace for there efforts out there.

The Rwandan soldiers loved us, always wanted their photo taken with a British soldier. Felt like a celebrity lol.
