We meet the mind of investigative journalist Pauli Van Wyk. The risk of exposing the underbelly of stories linked to VBS, the ANC and the EFF doesn’t make life comfortable, but she has never hidden from the responsibility of bringing justice to the fore. Can journalism survive in its current model? Pauli gives her thoughts. A self-confessed “real African”, and clearly a tremendous mind, the MBA at Henley is the next chapter in what is sure to be an evolution into something amazing which will help her continue to lead the fight for the marginalised citizens of South Africa.

The Grammys votes are tampered with, news to us or just confirming something we knew already? Taylor Swift… talent or just a bunch of lies? Haters gonna hate hate hate!
