Project Description

Join TimesLIVE Editor Makhudu Sefara in conversation with a panel of experts as they discuss challenges facing the country’s intelligence services. While the country’s spy networks rely on utmost secrecy to ensure the sustenance of peace in the country, this very secrecy seems to provide cover for large scale theft and corruption.

What is being done about this?

Is it enough simply to stop the looting?

Given South Africa’s place in the world, what role should our spies be playing to advance entrenchment of democracy and economic development – at home and elsewhere?
