In this book, Mzukisi Ndara shares his endless battle for justice which all started from a vehicle he purchased in 2004. It was at the pinnacle of his career in the public service when this unfortunate transaction turned his life upside down. As a young family man, joining government with all the possibilities of a bright future, his life descended into a horrible episode of court dates, dark dealings, and betrayals.
“Your story needs to be told for business and government to understand they can’t keep turning a blind eye to their people who believe the end justifies the means regarding profit-making.” – Professor Thuli Madonsela
“It’s a baffling, bewildering and unsettling story.” – Justice Edwin Cameron
“It’s a proverbial battle of David versus Goliath. A senior government employee has been embroiled in a bitter battle against one of the country’s largest financiers. His story is mired in alleged fraud, corruption and misconduct. In the pursuit for justice, Mzukisi Ndara has approached several high-ranking politicians, parliament as the custodian of the country’s laws, the Hawks and the courts. But 15 years into the battle, the matter has yet to be resolved. And some dockets containing vital evidence have gone missing. Ndara has now turned to the Director of Public Prosecutions as a last resort. ” – Bulelwa Payi; Weekend Argus
