The  following  reference  is  taken  from za  as  well  as  from  Wikipedia :
Executive Outcomes
was a  private, military, company  founded in  South  Africa by former Lieutenant-Colonel  of the South  African  Defence  Force, Eeben  Barlow in 1989. It later became part of the South African-based  holding  company,Strategic Resource Corporation.
In Angola, Sierra Leone and Papua New Guinea, it stepped in while the UN revealed itself as little more than a debating society. But the motives of this mercenary army are open to question: was it more interested in protecting Sierra Leone\'s diamond mines than the people caught up in a savage guerilla war?

Journalist Jim Hooper followed Executive Outcomes on operations all over Africa and in this book reveals the story of a mercenary army in action.
