South Africans have been faced with and negatively affected by SOE failures, most recently those of PRASA and Eskom along with the distressing evidence presented at the Zondo Commission of Inquiry. The infographic designed by DOI aims to reflect on these experiences and provide information to various members of the public. It follows the life of Siphokazi, a young journalist affected by the daily realities of SOE failures. She sets out to provide information to many others like herself on the often intricate concepts and governance challenges facing SOEs. This visual aid raises crucial questions about the public’s power as indirect shareholders and stakeholders in government to hold the relevant Minister accountable.
