Sygnia offers Gupta whistle-blower Bianca Goodson a job

An honourable company would have said, ‘We applaud what you’re doing. We have your back’.

KPMG in South Africa should close down.

Bianca Goodson – the former CEO of Trillian Management Consulting (TMC) – last month blew the lid on how Trillian earned lucrative consulting fees by allegedly facilitating access to top officials.

Goodson made an offer to her new employer – payroll software company Sage – that she would go if they had any concerns about her whistle-blowing.

Sage wasted no time accepting her offer to leave.

Anti-corruption campaigner Magda Wierzycka – CEO of Sygnia Asset Management – has hired Goodson and called Sage out on the circumstances around the supposed resignation.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Wierzycka.

Listen to the interview in the audio below (and/or scroll down for more quotes from it).

Bianca is immensely qualified… she’s a South African hero!

Whistle blowers should be celebrated as heroes.

Magda Wierzycka, Sygnia Asset Management

She advised Sage that she’s going public… they dismissed her!

Magda Wierzycka, Sygnia Asset Management

I don’t want to use the word ‘whistle blower’. I prefer the word ‘hero’.

Magda Wierzycka, Sygnia Asset Management

People need to know they are safe and protected when they step up.

Magda Wierzycka, Sygnia Asset Management

I’m not seeing corporate South Africa step up. I see the little people stepping up!

Magda Wierzycka, Sygnia Asset Management

I’ve seen nothing but cowardice, lack of integrity and lack of honour.
