The Life Esidimeni case and the role of the Media | Town Hall Thursday 3 May
You are invited to an open Town Hall in conversation with Suzanne Venter facilitated by Leane Meiring. Suzanne Venter, senior investigative journalist at Rapport and winner of the prestigious Taco Kuiper prize for investigative journalism, published a series of investigative reports in the weekly Sunday newspaper that inevitably resulted in an official inquiry by the health ombudsman and pushed the plight of psychiatric patients onto the national agenda after being severely neglected by our South African government. Come and draw your own opinion on the important role of the media as the custodian of our young and fragile democratic society.
