In 2016, out of desperation while on a pilgrimage in France, former South African Airways (SAA) treasurer Cynthia Stimpel sent a WhatsApp message to officials at National Treasury, warning them of a dirty deal in the making at SAA. It was ignored. They had stalled and blocked her at every turn, but Stimpel was relentless in her efforts to stop a R15b cash-raising deal from being pulled off outside of due process – and with the help of BnP Capital as transaction adviser for R225m – while South African banks could do it for +/-R85m. Stimpel was fired for standing up to corruption; SAA’s version: she was suspended for misconduct and sharing confidential documents.
