Probe into corrupt shenanigans of top ANC official abandoned by because of this

Efforts to create a crime free South Africa have been brought to a halt after there has been yet another major obstacle. The obstacle which the investigating committee has faced this time around has deemed the mission impossible to fully implement.

This comes as bad news as the person being investigated is a member of the ANC who might have missed the funds of the public.

According to a report which was published by the SAfm News on the 3rd of September 2021, the Parliament's Joint Standing Committee on Defence has abandoned its probe into allegations of corruption against former Defence Minister Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula.

The report went on to clarify why the standing committee had failed to carry out the probe. It is being reported that this is because the committee members failed to obtain an affidavit from the whistleblower who had made the allegations to UDM leader Bantu Holomisa.

The reason why the whistleblower refused to make the affidavit available is not known. However security concerns might have played a huge part in the whistleblower failing to make the essential information available.

Some believe that the whistleblower might now be living in fear of their life as there have been a series of attacks and assassinations of whistleblowers in the country.

Security has been a case of great concern when it comes to being a whistleblower as the top officials you will be exposing may hire a hitman who may take your life. Recently, a whistleblower who was exposing the corruption involved in PPE procurement was shot dead. This therefore makes the role of whistleblowers a hotspot as they will be seen as enemies of the looters. Authorities in this country need to address the issue of security of whistleblowers as they are getting killed like rats and the law seems to be favouring criminals.
