Journalism Panel Violently Disrupted

Last week an event held by South Africa's amaBhungane Centre for Investigative Journalism was disrupted by a group of several dozen who sang, shouted and physically threatened participants and members of the public. AmaBhungane's Stefaans Brummer told a local radio station after the event that it was unfortunate that police, who were called to the site after the disturbance, stood by and watched instead of assisting. The event was held to discuss #GuptaLeaks, a collaborative investigation by amaBhungane, News24 and the Daily Maverick’s Scorpio which further explores allegations of state capture and corrupt relationships between President Jacob Zuma and his allies and the controversial Gupta family.
