Description - The Wonga Coup by Adam Roberts

In July 2008 British mercenary Simon Mann was sentenced to 34 years in prison for attempting to overthrow the government of Equatorial Guinea. This revised edition of Adam Roberts' gripping account of the coup contains sensational new material on all of the latest developments.In March 2004 a group led by Nick Du Toit and former SAS member Simon Mann tried to overthrow the tyrannical Obiang Nguema, president of Equatorial Guinea. They were working for financially-motivated investors, allegedly including Mark Thatcher and 'J.H. Archer', who wanted to seize control of Africa's third largest oil producer. Adam Roberts tells how the coup was set up and abandoned at the last minute, and how the plotters, seized from an impounded plane in Zimbabwe, were subsequently tortured. The new material includes an updated account of the role of Mark 'Scratcher' Thatcher.
