In the day of our forefathers, when Africa was still dark and mysterious, the sound of the Isigubhu (the drum) would often ring out over the mountains, echo in the valleys and startle the springbok herds on the grass plains. The Isigubhu’s news echoed from one village to the next bringing news of a newborn chief, a king being crowned or to warn one another of pending danger.
Beating the Drum Against Corruption
Today the sound of the Isigubhu, again rings out over Africa. Together we are taking a stand against Fraud, Corruption and Crime. Whistle-blowing is about “raising a concern about unethical or dishonest conduct within an organisation, or outside an organisation, and which conduct has an impact on the organisation’s operations”. It is a key tool to promoting individual responsibility and organisational accountability in combating fraud and corruption. Together we are beating the drum against corruption.
