Breakfast Show host Bongani Bingwa says while some broke during state capture, others kept their integrity.

Breakfast Show host Bongani Bingwa says people like Sunita Manik and Tshebeletso Seremane ,who were both senior executives at SARS and refused to be captured, need to be commended.

Bingwa says it is known that there was resistance to the state capture at the very highest levels of government.

He states that Nhlanhla Nene lost his job as a result, as did his deputy, Mcebisi Jonas who also refused R600m.

He says we might not know about others who refused to be captured.

But what about the unsung heroines, who were nameless and unknown? The people who could be bullied and silenced and abused? The people who suffered psychological trauma as a result of relentless pressure and sustained attacks on their reputations and ability to do their jobs.

Bongani Bingwa, Breakfast Show host

Spare a thought for two women who testified yesterday at the Nugent Inquiry into the revenue service. Sunita Manik and Tshebeletso Seremane, who were both senior executives who were sidelined so that effectively dodgy deals could be struck outside of what was previously, a highly regulated, environment that dealt specifically with corporate tax.

Bongani Bingwa, Breakfast Show host

There are many like Manik and Seremane. Professional people who studied hard, qualified and were diligent in the execution of their work.

Bongani Bingwa, Breakfast Show host

Sadly, we will never hear about some of them because they did break. Some are out of work, out of homes and suffering major depression. Some lost spouses and maybe their own children don't want to see them. And no-one believed them.
