More about the book!
Join 702 and Pan Macmillan for a virtual launch of Mandy Wiener’s new book The Whistleblowers.
702 Breakfast host Bongani Bingwa will be in conversation with bestselling author Mandy Wiener and Felix Dlangamandla, award-winning photographer.
Wiener and Dlangamandla will be sharing some of the behind the scenes stories of their experiences interviewing and photographing the whistleblowers who have played a pivotal role in bringing both government and business wrongdoing to light in South Africa.
‘It made me really consider what happens to whistleblowers in South Africa, their plight, the value that we don’t give to whistleblowers … and I just thought it was so important to shine a light on the issue of whistleblowers in South Africa. So I thought instead of writing a book about one whistleblower, I thought I’d write a book on a cross-section of whistleblowers in South Africa.’ – Mandy Wiener, author and 702 presenter
Although the cases are familiar Wiener’s reporting shines a light on humans behind the news and the struggles that most whistleblowers face after choosing to speak up. These are the raw and evocative accounts of South Africa’s whistleblowers, told in their own voices and from their own perspectives.
