He said though the car did arrive, the importer managed to elude them.

The security source noted that had the former President done the right thing by passing through the correct procedure at the National Security, the State Protocol would have done the clearing for him, but he would now have to wait for directives from the hierarchy of National Security.
“The right thing should be done at the right time. We shouldn’t be repeating things all over. It doesn’t augur well for the country”, the security source said.
