How One Courageous Whistleblower Fought against the Capture of SAA

She knew she might lose her job as group treasurer, yet Cynthia Stimpel decided to blow the whistle anyway. She simply could not keep quiet about an irregular deal of R256 million at South African Airways on Dudu Myeni's watch. It was not an easy decision, but 'the right one'.

Cynthia was on a pilgrimage in France when she received word that a dodgy deal between BNP Capital and SAA was signed against her strict orders. She immediately sent a whistleblowing message to National Treasury and raised the alarm in an attempt to stop the deal.

Although she succeeded in saving SAA millions she paid a high price for speaking the truth; She lost her job and her reputation. Yet her battle against Myeni and her fellow state capturers at the SAA was far from over. She still had to face Myeni in court and testify against her at the Zondo Commission.

The Accidental Whistleblower is a very personal state capture story that shows how one brave individual was able to change the course of history.

Die debat oor emigrasie is so oud soos Suid-Afrika se demokrasie self. Toe die “nuwe Suid-Afrika” in 1994 aangebreek het, het talle mense die land verlaat uit vrees vir wat 'n meerderheidsbewind sou inhou. Nog meer het in die jare sedertdien getrek opsoek na 'n beter lewe en Suid-Afrikaanse gemeenskappe is nou in plekke soos Kanada, Engeland en Australië te vinde. Vandag, 25 jaar ná demokrasie en in die lig van kwynende optimisme oor die toekoms van die land, is daar nuwe lewe in die debat oor emigrasie. Hierdie keer word dit nie net in reaksionêre kringe gevoer nie, maar om die eetkamertafels van meerdere Suid-Afrikaners. Met die realiteit van nege vermorste jare wat aan ons beursies en toekomsmoontlikhede knaag, en die aanloklike geleenthede wat die globale ekonomie bied, vra al hoe meer mense, “Moet ek waai?”
In Moet ons waai? takel meer as 20 van Suid-Afrika se voorste meningsvormers, insluitend Piet Croucamp, Dana Snyman, Melanie Verwoerd en Jonathan Jansen, hierdie vraag. Dit is poging tot insig oor 'n kwessie wat swaar weeg op ons kollektiewe psige, en 'n uitdaging aan elke persoon wat dit oorweeg om te waai, reeds gegaan het of besluit het om te bly om te floreer as Suid-Afrikaners waar ook al hulle hulself mag bevind.

Alet Law is die nuusbrief- en leserbetrokkenheidsredakteur by News24 en voormalige meningsredakteur. Sy het 'n PhD in politieke kommunikasie aan die Universiteit van Kaapstad verwerf.

Waldimar Pelser se politieke kruisverhoor
Hy noem Julius Malema 'n “rassis, diktator en fascis”, die ANC “ 'n spul kripvreters” en oudpres. Jacob Zuma 'n “korrupte, seksistiese politieke tsotsi”.
Waldimar Pelser ontsien niks en niemand nie. Week ná week neem hy politici en besluitnemers onder kruisverhoor. In sy vreeslose en vlymskerp inleidings tot kykNET Verslag se aktuele TV-program In Gesprek laat hy maghebbers behoorlik deurloop - ook pres. Cyril Ramaphosa en DA-leier Mmusi Maimane het al hul beurt gekry.
In Gesprek met Waldimar is 'n versameling van die 100 beste, lekkerste en dapperste van hierdie inleidings. In forensiese detail pak Pelser elke gek en skurk wat wil keer dat ons land floreer. Hy wys hoe naby ons aan die afgrond was en hoe ons wéér daar kan beland as ons nie dié in beheer tot verantwoording roep nie.

Waldimar Pelser is redakteur van die Sondagkoerant Rapport. Hy is al drie keer met 'n ATKV-Mediaveertjie as beste aanbieder van 'n nuus- of aktualiteitsprogram bekroon. Voor sy joernalistieke loopbaan het hy in die regte en die joernalistiek aan die Universiteit Stellenbosch gestudeer en daarna 'n meestersgraad aan die Oxford-universiteit in Engeland verwerf.

Bomplanters, sluipmoordenaars, saboteurs. Almal Afrikaners.
Kragstasies is opgeblaas en politieke moorde uitgevoer.
Dié terreurveldtog van militante Afrikaners, wat die land in die 1940's naby aan die afgrond van anargie gebring het, is vandag grootliks vergete.
In Wit terroriste vlek Albert Blake dit oop. 
Wat het hulle gedryf? Waarvoor het hulle baklei? Was hulle verraaiers of was hulle ware patriotte?
'n Fassinerende blik op 'n versweë, hoogs aangrypende deel van die Afrikaner-geskiedenis.

Plofbare opinies was nog altyd 'n onderskeidende kenmerk van Afrikaners. Politici, skrywers, joernaliste en die man op straat was nog nooit skaam om by bekgevegte betrokke te raak nie. Tradisioneel was die gedrukte media die forum waar polemieke uitgewoed het. In die vroegste dae aan die Kaap is die slawekwessie driftig gedebatteer, en toe die Voortrekkers hulle skrede noordwaarts gerig het, het teenstrydige argumente uitgespeel in een van die vroeë Suid-Afrikaanse koerante, Grocott's Mail.
Die waarde van gesprekke in die aanloop en nadraai van geskiedkundige gebeure soos rebellies, opstande en oorloë kan nie onderskat word nie. Politieke verwikkelinge soos Suid- Afrikaners se gesprekke met die ANC toe dié organisasie nog verban was, het die hele land aan die stry gehad. Om nie te praat van Afrikaans en sy rasse-bagasie of kerksake soos die Belharbelydenis en die hantering van gay lidmate nie. En wie sal die spanning wat tussen H.F. Verwoerd en N.P. van Wyk Louw ontstaan het met die pluimsaad-polemiek, vergeet? Piekniek by Dingaan en die Voëlvry-beweging het nie net opskuddings op kultuurgebied veroorsaak nie. Ook het die eggo's van kwessies soos “gemengde” sport en boikotte, en die skandes wat sportsterre soos Hansie Cronjé, Joost van der Westhuizen en Oscar Pistorius veroorsaak het, in alle sfere van die samelewing weerklink.

Misdaad soos plaasaanvalle en -moorde is daagliks op Suid-Afrikaners se lippe, net soos wat daar steeds oor figure soos Daisy de Melker, Gert van Rooyen en Joey Haarhoff gegons word. In Polemieke bied Gabriël Botma lesers 'n blik op bekende én byna vergete woordtwiste wat die Suid-Afrikaanse geskiedenis help slyp het. Karakters wat 'n sentrale rol in Afrikanerpolemieke gespeel het, word aan die vergetelheid ontruk, en hedendaagse polemici kom onder die loep. Binne die konteks van Afrikaner-nasionalisme het dié strydpunte deurgaans gelei tot groter insig onder betrokkenes en lesers, maar terselfdertyd is die verdelingslyne wat van ver af kom, dieper afgeëts.

Die bekende dr. Pieter Mulder is aan die woord oor sy wedervaringe in die politiek. Dit handel hoofsaaklik oor sy meer onlangse ervarings (ná 1994) as parlementslid, maar ook oor sy ervarings voor die eerste demokratiese verkiesing. Oor byna elke land kan hy 'n storie vertel, o.a. oor die keer toe 'n Duitse regeringsamptenaar nie rekening gehou het met Afrikatyd nie.

From the bestselling authors of Saving the Last Rhinos comes a new vivid account of environmental conservation and the ongoing efforts to conserve and restore Africa's iconic wildlife and its wildernesses on a war-ravaged continent.

This vivid account shares the desperate conservationist efforts to save, preserve and restore Africa's wildlife, and the tragic losses that sometimes happen along the way. Fowlds describes heart-pumping face-offs with poachers and how impoverished rural people are exploited by rapacious local businessmen. He also highlights the world-threatening illicit trade in ivory and endangered wildlife, some if it sold in 'wet markets'.

Rewilding Africa goes to the heart of the impact of Covid-19 on conservation efforts, it describes the importance of wildlife tourism that sustains rural communities, and tells of conservationists' passioned endeavours to support people through the crisis.

Fowlds and Spence take readers on a journey across some of the richest habitats in Africa, teaching the importance of conservation, and the vitalness the survival of wildlife has on humanity's existence and that of the planet

Not long ago, the tech industry was widely admired and the internet was regarded as a tonic for freedom and democracy. Not anymore. Every day, the headlines blaze with reports of racist algorithms, data leaks, and social media platforms festering with falsehood and hate. In this book, acclaimed author Jamie Susskind argues that these problems are not the fault of a few bad apples at the top of the industry. They are the result of our failure to govern technology properly, a failure derived from decades of muddled ideas and wishful thinking. The Digital Republic charts a new course, with new legal standards, new public bodies and institutions, new duties on platforms, new rights and regulators, and new codes of conduct for people in the tech industry.

Plant-based is best for health, go vegan to help save the planet, eat less meat…
But what if the pervasive message that the plant-based diet will improve our health and save the planet is misleading - or even false? What if removing animal foods from our diet is a serious threat
to human health, and a red herring in the fight against climate change. Jayne Buxton demonstrates
that each of these 'what-ifs' is, in fact, a reality. Drawing on the work of numerous health experts and
researchers, she uncovers how the separate efforts of a constellation of individuals, companies and
organisations are leading us down a dietary road that will have severe repercussions for our health
and wellbeing, and for the future of the planet.

Pharma-funded mainstream media has convinced millions of Americans that Dr. Anthony Fauci is a hero. He is anything but.
As director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), Dr. Anthony Fauci dispenses $6.1 billion in annual taxpayer-provided funding for scientific research, allowing him to dictate the subject, content, and outcome of scientific health research across the globe. Fauci uses the financial clout at his disposal to wield extraordinary influence over hospitals, universities, journals, and thousands of influential doctors and scientists—whose careers and institutions he has the power to ruin, advance, or reward. During more than a year of painstaking and meticulous research, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. unearthed a shocking story that obliterates media spin on Dr. Fauci... and that will alarm every American—Democrat or Republican—who cares about democracy, our Constitution, and the future of our children's health.

The Real Anthony Fauci reveals how “America's Doctor” launched his career during the early AIDS crisis by partnering with pharmaceutical companies to sabotage safe and effective off-patent therapeutic treatments for AIDS. Fauci orchestrated fraudulent studies, and then pressured US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulators into approving a deadly chemotherapy treatment he had good reason to know was worthless against AIDS. Fauci repeatedly violated federal laws to allow his Pharma partners to use impoverished and dark-skinned children as lab rats in deadly experiments with toxic AIDS and cancer chemotherapies.

In early 2000, Fauci shook hands with Bill Gates in the library of Gates' $147 million Seattle mansion, cementing a partnership that would aim to control an increasingly profitable $60 billion global vaccine enterprise with unlimited growth potential. Through funding leverage and carefully cultivated personal relationships with heads of state and leading media and social media institutions, the Pharma-Fauci-Gates alliance exercises dominion over global health policy.

The Real Anthony Fauci details how Fauci, Gates, and their cohorts use their control of media outlets, scientific journals, key government and quasi-governmental agencies, global intelligence agencies, and influential scientists and physicians to flood the public with fearful propaganda about COVID-19 virulence and pathogenesis, and to muzzle debate and ruthlessly censor dissent.

In 2012, retired South African general Johan Jooste was parachuted into the seemingly unwinnable war against rhino poaching in the Kruger National Park. With poaching spiralling out of control, Jooste was given the mandate to 'go military', to convert Kruger's ranger corps into a paramilitary force capable of taking the fight to the poachers. Aged 60, white, and a veteran with 35 years' military service, Jooste's controversial appointment was immediately met with resentment and outright hostility by elements of South African National Parks, the police, and even the military with which he had served. With the media, government, conservationists, human-rights activists and the people of South Africa looking over his shoulder, Jooste had to battle opponents within and without to carry out his strategy for turning the tide on rhino poaching. Rhino War tells how Jooste, facing an unprecedented assault on a national park and a single species, turned a force of demoralised men and women into arguably the finest anti-poaching unit on the African continent. Told through his eyes, these stories of the courage and grit of rangers who risked their lives to protect wildlife in the face of a wily and determined foe are an account of heroism, sacrifice and determination. Humbly, honestly and decisively, Jooste tells of the successes and failures of his bold strategy, and shares his vision for the future.

In order to look to the future, we must first understand the past. On 2 November 2016, then Public Protector Thuli Madonsela ordered a Commission of Inquiry into State Capture. Chaired by Judge Raymond Zondo, the commission began proceedings on 21 August 2018. After three years of staggering testimonies, the breadth and depth of how South Africa was captured has been laid bare for a traumatised nation to comprehend.
Days of Zondo is the definitive guide to what was formally exposed during the commission; with players ranging from the Gupta family to former president Jacob Zuma, Gupta lieutenant Salim Essa, Ace Magashule, former NPA boss Shaun Abrahams, Brian Molefe, Bosasa's Angelo Agrizzi, numerous ministers and associates, business leaders and corporate entities.
This tangled web of corruption and criminality is unravelled by award-winning journalist Ferial Haffajee as she leads the threader through Zondo's biggest moments and the most shocking admissions, and makes sense of the commission's findings.
With infographics and timelines that give a bird's-eye view of the key findings from the commission's report, including how much money was spent, how much was lost and where it could have helped us improve the quality of life for ordinary South African citizens.
It also includes commentary from Ismail Momoniat, deputy director-general at the National Treasury, and Ivor Chipkin, a leading scholar of government and public policy in South Africa and internationally.

After unknown saboteurs toppled a strategic pylon near Lethabo Power Station in the Free State in November 2021, almost causing the country to plunge into stage 5 load-shedding, Eskom's chief executive officer André de Ruyter declared: 'This was clearly now an act of sabotage and I think we can call it as such.'

It was not the first such incident, but it was the clearest indication to date that there are individuals out there intent on causing maximum damage to the ailing power utility, and more specifically, to its corruption-busting CEO, De Ruyter, and straight-shooting COO Jan Oberholzer.

In Sabotage: The Onslaught on Eskom, award-winning journalist Kyle Cowan unravels the history, corruption and politicisation of the state power utility to explain how and why those entrusted with turning it around are being systematically targeted in what can only be described as a sustained and vicious onslaught designed to protect political patronage networks and those intent on robbing the country.
Drawing from interviews, documents, court cases and testimony at the Zondo Commission, this is a shocking account of an orchestrated campaign that affects the daily lives of all South Africans and the survival of the country's economy.
