Whistle-blower and anti-corruption activist Thabiso Zulu.

Whistleblowers are no longer being killed by gangsters or corrupt politicians, but are being killed by the state.

This was the view of whistleblower and anti-corruption activist Thabiso Zulu, who said that too little was being said about the number of whistleblowers who were being killed after submitting incriminating evidence to the authorities.

Zulu, whose family has been attacked and his mother threatened with rape by police officers, spoke out following the recent death of Gauteng Health Department official Babita Deokaran, who was shot outside her home in Mondeor, Johannesburg, late last month.
