Attacks on witnesses, whistleblowers should worry everyone - Themba Maseko
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.Themba Maseko, Former GCIS CEO
