Nick du Toit

Alleged South African ringleader of a group of coup-plotters now on trial in the Equatorial Guinean capital Malabo. The prosecution has called for the death sentence against him.

Du Toit is a former member of the South African army's elite Special Task Forces unit and worked alongside Mann in a mercenary outfit in Angola and Sierra Leone.
