Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's minder has been accused of threatening locals in Namibia, as the actress prepares to give birth in the African country.

According to local press reports, Mickey Brett has closed off roads around the resort where the couple are staying, local children have been chased off public beaches and reporters and photographers threatened with physical violence.

Jolie and Pitt are expected to be in Namibia for the next six weeks as they prepare for the birth. But locals are losing patience with the heavy-handed behavior of Brett and the security team he has hired--who are thought to be members of an apartheid-era counter-insurgency unit.

One resident tells a Namibian newspaper, "I sympathize with Brad Pitt and Angelina because they do want privacy, but on the other hand they are public figures and there is a lot of interest in their visit. From what I hear they are nice people but their security guys most certainly aren't."

Brett, who has worked for Nicole Kidman in the past, was arrested and charged--but later released--following the 1993 murder of a millionaire tycoon in London.
