Dear Friends and Foes

Key Takeaways

A year of political and economic shocks – and glimmers of hope – is drawing to a close and the holidays are upon us.

When deciding what to give to your nearest this year, please consider making a small donation to our investigative journalism centre.

Our readers care about our country. They want to see a democracy that is more open, accountable and just. They also know that a free and independent press is critical to getting there.

With your help, we can expose more wrongdoing and empower people to work for change.

We believe that the story we published today – about how the ideal of black empowerment was twisted to make the politically connected very rich from a tender that should serve the poor – shows the solidity and value of our work.

The same could be said of this exposé about evidence connecting the Gupta family to a kickback laundering network.

Thank you for your support this year, and happy holidays.
