A collection of finalists of the Taco Kuiper Award for Investigative Reporting, this title illustrates the revival of hard-hitting investigative reporting in South Africa and highlights the important role it is playing. These exposes range from government corruption, through white collar crime, to environmental and social issues, written by the country's leading reporters. It includes an essay by Prof Anton Harber on the state of South African journalism and the context for these awards. Stories collected in the title include: South Africa's biggest-ever fraudster; The prosecuting chief who used plagiarism to get the president off the hook; The shifty local politician who used foreign aid money to help a community (but forgot to tell the community about it); Our shoot-to-kill policemen; The anti-apartheid hero and ruling party spin doctor who turned out to be a compete fraud; The horror of Zimbabwe prisons.
