Covid-19 by the numbers

Covid-19 by the numbers

25 September 2020 7:30 AM

It’s been a week since the country moved to Alert Level 1 of the lockdown regulations. At the time, you heard from President Cyril Ramaphosa, Health Minister Dr Zweli Mkhize and other health experts that the number of new Covid-19 cases had dropped significantly.

 It had been clear that South Africa had moved past its peak of the pandemic, as the number of new Covid-19 cases averaged between around 950 and 2000 cases each day.

But over the past week, you’ve heard on this show and on Afternoon Drive with John Perlman, about how some doctors in Johannesburg have noticed an increase in Covid-19 cases over the past week.

Bongani joined by Professor Adrian Puren, Head of the Centre for HIV and STIs at the NICD.

Exclusive: The plight of whistleblowers

21 October 2020 7:42 AM

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.
