Simply referred to as PLO, Kenyan law and politics academic Prof Patrict Loch Otieno Lumumba was at his usual best in a panel presentation at the Rwanda National Security Symposium on May 14, 2018. He shared the panel with Rwanda Defense Minister Gen James Kabarebe, former Nigerian foreign minister Prof Ibrahim Gambari and security expert Prof Adebayo Olukoshi. Prof Lumumba spoke on day 1 but the symposium was held over three days. It was attended by military officers from different countries at the Rwanda Defence Force Command and Staff College, Musanze district. The senior student officers are from Kenya, Czech Republic, Ghana, Rwanda, Malawi, Uganda, Tanzania, Senegal and Zambia. The war against Putin stems from the sudden inability for crooks to plunder Russia's resources as well as get away with stealing budget funds - and - God forbid - have to pay taxes via their independent companies (often, contracted to government projects! ) The man mentioned in the first clip, Mr. Belalov, ran away and was granted asylum in the UK. He cited political reasons for his inability to stay in Russia, when he was simply siphoning money from the government. There are many outtakes like these - I picked only a couple for this compilation.

Secret offices - On H Street in Washington DC, there’s a dull-looking, 9 storey, tan-bricked, unnamed building. It’s so indistinctive, you could walk past it and not even know it’s there. Secret arsenal - As you’d expect, the Secret Service has the latest in cutting-edge weaponry at their disposal. When you’re dealing with people who want to harm the President, you have to get the job done first time. Not just the President - While protecting the President is the Secret Service's priority, they don’t just protect him. The First Lady, the Vice President, the rest of the First Family, and all former Presidents all receive official protection. They're stuck to the President - When you’re guarding the President, you have to go wherever they go. Literally. Even when the president goes to the bathroom, there’s an armed agent in there with him. Brains over brawn - They don’t call these guys Special Agents for nothing. Secret Service agents used to be primarily recruited from the military, but nowadays they go for brains over brawn. No sworn oath - Contrary to what they tell you in Hollywood movies, Secret Service agents do not swear an oath to lay down their life for the President. Advanced recon - As we heard earlier, the hardest part of the Secret Service’s job is protecting the President when they’re at events with large crowds. Transport secrets - We’ve all seen the Presidential motorcade, the seemingly endless parade of black stretch limos. But, there’s only one President. They know where you are - If you’re interested in the President, it’s safe to say the Secret Service is interested in you. They’re able wingmen - It seems when you're the leader of the free world, you automatically become extremely attractive to the opposite sex.
