Law focus looks at the Protected Disclosures Act and the amendments put forward to protect whistleblowers from civil and criminal liability.

Whistleblowing is an integral part of a functioning democracy and the protection afforded to whistleblowers has to be strengthened.

Law Focus speaks to Programme Manager of the Whistleblowing Unit at Open Democracy Advice Center (ODAC) and Attorney at Corruption Watch Nhlamulo Mvelase. We also speak about the relationship between journalists and whistleblowers with Tabelo Timse who is an investigative journalist at Amabhungane.

This edition of Law Focus is produced by Khutso Tsikane and presented by Nyiko Shikwambane.
