Author: Graeme Joffe
Paperback (now available at leading bookstores countrywide)
An explosive, hard hitting expose which delves into the mass systemic corruption in South African sport which is shattering the dreams of the country’s athletes who are silenced by draconian codes of conduct.
The author is former CNN International Sports anchor turned investigative sports journalist, Graeme Joffe who had to flee his native South Africa, fearing for his safety.
He returned to the USA where he applied for political asylum.
Joffe was a lone crusader for seven years with a big target on his back as he reported without fear or favor.
Top ranking government officials, administrators, coaches, companies, media and friends are named and shamed.
It was a dark and lonely crusade in a country which has little to no culture of investigative sports journalism.
More than 20 years into the country’s democracy, the corrupt have destroyed Nelson Mandela’s incredible legacy and his immortal words: “Sport has the power to change the world.”!
