South African President Cyril Ramaphosa has appointed Mahlodi Sam Muofhe as the new director of the domestic arm of the State Security Agency (SSA). Muofhe was once CEO of the Methodist Church of South Africa and, briefly, a journalist. He received his law degree from Unisa (University of South Africa) and began practising as an advocate in 2011. He was most recently employed in the office of the Deputy Prime Minister and was also as a special advisor to the Security Minister. Unsurprisingly, he is known to be a Ramaphosa loyalist.
