Manticorp Holdings LLC has just popped up in the mercenary space in #Mozambique and #Cabo Delgado. It lists Simon Mann and Erik Prince as advisors and Francisco Serra-Martins just finished a tour running drones. IMHO There is something very creepy about their logo and services.
When I talked to Francisco Serra-Martins on the phone he insisted he had never been to Africa. What company uses code names like Echo Pappa and Foxtrot Sierra to mask lethal drone services? Aka Loitering munitions? Serra Martins is Sonder and a member of the Australian military.
Check out their client list and make sure you call to confirm that they are not just conflating their advisor and secret masthead connections. They have dumped “Pax Africans” as their slogan.
"Bravo Tango" or perhaps Tango Bravo is CEO, "Delta Charlie" is Chief Science Officer and Francisco Serra-Martins is Chief Technical Officer. They offer loitering munitions as Vekta and a host of high tech solutions for African clients including the UN, US State Dept and armies.
Simon Mann and Tony Buckingham go back to the operation at Soyo, Angola with Executive Outcome's Lafras Lutingh. That operation is definitely worth a read. Lafras ran Erik Prince's anti piracy project in Puntland as Saracen and then hired Chris Grove as Sterling. Same thing.
Simon Mann is most famous for the Equatorial Guinea coup failure. He and others spent a lot of time in jail. I was there when he showed up in chains in Malabo. Everyone told him the gig was compromised. But he persisted.…
Many good men suffered because of that episode.
Manticorp's original slogan was Pax Africana a few days ago. In June of 1967, exile Ali A. Mazrui published "Towards a Pax Africana: A Study of Ideology and Ambition" .

Feel the irony
In any case get your mercenary on. Don't forget to be "seconded" which will not protect you from civil cases filed by aggrieved families or blanket arms embargos in your home nation.
Damage control as Franciso Serra Martins aka Manticorp Holdings LLC desperately tries to redo his website and pretend that these are not the drones we are looking for "Worked with" vs "Trusted By". Nordic vs Red Cross. Go home Cisco. You are not fooling anyone.
Francisco. Spell my name right.
And just like magic... the mythical Manticorp Holdings LLC is no longer on the Executive Outcomes Wiki page. Thankfully @EebenBarlow didn't even have to issue one of his famous denial letters. However Wiki never forgets.…
Well I will be damned. Looks like Manticorp is Manti No More. It would appear to be a scam.
Some remember when I blew up Johnathan "Keith" Idema who singlehandedly saved America from the taliban in his book Hunt for Bin Laden. When he started threatening friends I said I would have somebody inside his house within 48 hrs. And surprise surprise.…
Bob Loomis at Random House wouldn't do it, the media wouldn't do it so after he began conning women, infecting them with HIV and threatening to kill people somebody had to set things straight. He never left his house after that and ultimately died of AIDs.…
