Former GCIS CEO Themba Maseko says the security of whistleblowers should be made a priority.

Former GCIS CEO Themba Maseko says the country should be worried about the attacks on high-profile whistle-blowers.

The home of former South African Revenue Service (Sars) executive Johann van Loggerenberg was broken into during the early hours of Tuesday morning.

The break-in happened days after the home of Maseko was targeted by burglars.

Bongani Bingwa speaks to Maseko about this.

I am extremely worried and I think the whole country should be worried. This is not just about whistleblowers, there are a number of people who are witnesses to court cases in all kinds of matters and if you see a trend of witnesses and whistle being threatened it is something we should be worried about as a country.

Themba Maseko, Former GCIS CEO

I am particularly worried because these incidents happened soon after the release of the Zondo report. More of the whistleblowers may need to testify at a court of law and I think their security becomes more urgent.
