It is not easy being a whistle-blower in South Africa. Not only do you receive death threats and shunned by corporate South Africa, as many have experienced, but also have to deal with emotional distress and post-traumatic disorder.
Worse yet, unlike the United States, South Africa does not have an incentive programme for whistle-blowing. Before her life was entangled in state capture, Bianca Goodwill was a high powered executive, earning a good salary, while raising her daughter Chloe.
It all came tumbling down when blew the whistle on Trillian, it’s relationship with consultancy firm McKinsey and parastatal Eskom.
As a result of her whistleblowing, along with others including Mosilo Mothepu, an astonishing R1.6 billion has been returned to Eskom and to the fiscus. And what of Bianca now since her courageous act? She is unemployed unemployable, and suffering from Post-Traumatic disorder and running low on funds.
Bianca Goodson penned a passionate letter to Eskom CEO, Andre De Ruyte, challenging him and society for a reward mechanism for whistle-blowing.And as Mandy Wiener compelling argues, it may be time for a social revolution to treat whistle-blowers differently.

The Road Accident Fund has been on the verge of financial collapse for years and currently sitting on a debt of R70 billion. In 2018, Auditor General Kimi Makwetu warned parliament that the state owned entity faced financial collapse.
The Road The Fund owes victims of accidents more than 17 billion rands, with some waiting 5 years to be compensated; faces many litigations, applications to have its assets attached, and now it has approached the courts to grant it an extension of 180 days to pay its debts.
Will the fund be able to meet its obligations and pay all the claims against it? Can the Road Accident Fund continue to serve the needs of South Africa’s accident victims and how will the fund get its house in order? The newly appointed CEO certainly has his work cut out for him. Collins Letsoalo joins me now.
