On Saturday, News24 published the result of a seven-month investigation into allegations of gross human rights violations and abuse at KwaSizabantu Mission. You can make a difference by not buying their unholy water, writes Adriaan Basson.

Dear News24 reader, I have a small request. Before you buy your next bottle of aQuellé mineral or flavoured water, please first read our investigative series on the KwaSizabantu (KSB) Mission in northern KwaZulu-Natal.
