The Webber Wentzel Dispute Resolution Team is proud to present this whistleblowing cross-jurisdictional guide. It focuses on 9 key questions across 8 African jurisdictions, namely: Botswana; Ethiopia; Ghana; Kenya; Mauritius; Mozambique; Nigeria and South Africa.
Whistleblowers assist in shedding light on illegal activities – including, state capture, corruption and fraud that would otherwise go unnoticed. By reporting such conduct, whistleblowers not only stand up for themselves but also perform a public service for most of their fellow-citizens, because we all pay a price for state capture, corruption and fraud.
This analysis of the continent’s position and treatment of whistleblowers demonstrates how far we have come in Africa and how far we still need to go to continue to fight state capture, corruption and fraud.
We want to thank our alliance and relationship firms for teaming up with us, as well as our internal project team, our business development team, and all partners and associates at Webber Wentzel who have had a hand in compiling this publication.
