A whistleblower is someone who bravely walks into a proverbial fire, eyes wide open, hoping to expose the truth, knowing it could be at great personal cost. Whistleblowing is not easy and it’s not done lightly, but it’s an action that can change the world. That’s what former Trillian Financial Advisory CEO Mosilo Mothepu did when, three months after landing a dream job at the subsidiary of the Gupta-linked Trillian Capital Partners in 2016, she handed details of the company’s role in state capture to then-Public Protector Thuli Madonsela. For a long time, the Nenegate whistleblower tried to stay out of the public eye. Now, she is ready to tell the story of state capture from inside the boardroom. A story of powerful interests, of betrayal and loss, of triumph and angels who helped her along the way. As she rebuilds her life, her inspiring story of courage against the dark forces of greed and a weaponised state security apparatus highlights why South Africa needs to rethink its treatment of whistleblowers.
