[LISTEN] Stephen Grootes - Speak up against wrongdoing

With the Eskom probe in the spotlight and the Esidimeni arbitration hearings set to continue, Stephen Grootes questions why people did not speak out against wrongdoing.

Grootes acknowledges those who have been able to testify in both the arbitration and Eskom inquiry but maintains someone should have come forward with information, much earlier.

When bad thing happens, people around the situation often know about it, they know what is happening is wrong. It is very brave that they are speaking now but you are allowed to wish they had spoken out earlier.

Stephen Grootes, 702 anchor

It points to something that has gone wrong in our society when people who can see something is wrong are not able to speak up, when people are too afraid of losing their job or scared of their political boss....

Stephen Grootes, 702 anchor

If there is one lesson that we can learn from the Gupta's and from Esidimeni it is this, if you see something wrong speak up and if you do that you can save us as South Africa and save South Africans.
