“PSG’s mandate is to protect the President, thus, multi-faceted threats are usual considerations. With or without outstanding threat, it is but imperative for PSG to implement the highest security protocols.
In every engagement, assessment of the venue is conducted in order to determine the type of security measures needed to be enforced.
PSG decided to put bullet-proof glass on the presidential podium because the activity was situated in an open area.
Whilst our President want to have close encounter and dialogues with the people, PSG acknowledges the need to balance security and accessibility of the president.
