The story of barrister Thuli Madonsela who stood against state-sponsored corruption to take on former SA president Zuma.
Jacob Zuma's presidency posed the most difficult test yet to the country's democracy. Filmmaker Shameela Seedat offers a powerful portrait of the country's public protector, Thuli Madonsela, who fearlessly "whispered truth to power" throughout the Zuma era.
This film charts the final year in office of South Africa's Public Protector, Thuli Madonsela, as she attempts to bring justice to ordinary people.
In 2009 not a single member of parliament voted against Thuli Madonsela when she was nominated for the position of Public Protector. By the end of her seven year term, the political playing field had changed, drastically. We follow Madonsela during her final and tumultuous year in office, beginning with the landmark Constitutional Court case on the powers of the Public Protector, to Madonsela once again investigating the then President Jacob Zuma.
