The Story | Whistleblower Babita Deokaran's murder and what she tried t

To uncover the truth behind the brutal murder of whistleblower Babita Deokaran, News24's investigative team tried to expose what the chief accountant for the Gauteng health department had raised concerns about.

Deokaran was murdered outside her home in the south of Johannesburg in August 2021 after dropping her daughter off at school.

In a special exposé this week, News24 reported that Deokaran had tried to stop R100 million in dodgy payments and flagged nearly R850 million in other suspicious transactions to the Gauteng health department shortly before she was murdered.
