We are living in turbulent times
As corruption has become endemic to both the public and private sector the costs to the country are astronomical and mounting: credit rating downgrades, higher taxes and interest rates, a recession, the gradual collapse of basic services, political disarray and the depletion of savings of all South Africans.

They are aided by courageous and dedicated journalists willing to speak truth to power. But court cases and investigations require support and funding.
