The CCB was eventually exposed as a sinister monster, the creation of former minister of defence Magnus Malan and his securocrats. In its final form the CCB’s tentacles stretched all over Southern Africa and even to Europe. It was an organisation that made extensive use of criminals and convicted murderers like Ferdi Barnard and the Irishman Donald Acheson. Acheson was implicated in the murder of SWAPO leader Anton Lubowski in September 1989 when he died in a hail of bullets in front of his Windhoek home. Although his killers have not been brought to book, Namibian Judge Harold Levy found in the Windhoek Supreme Court in June 1994 that the internal region of the CCB headed by Staal Burger assassinated him. Lubowski died during a CCB campaign in Namibia to discredit SWAPO before the 1990 independent elections. The campaign included assassinating SWAPO leaders, infecting drinking water with cholera germs and planting bombs at SWAPO rallies.
