For the first time the Supreme Court of Appeal has been called on to adjudicate a protected disclosures dispute. The broader effect of the case - City of Tshwane Metropolitan Municipality v Engineering Council of South Africa and another - is to develop further South Africa's jurisprudence on "whistleblower" protection.

Rites of passage are a feature of the human condition. During our individual journeys we are likely to face a number of difficult decisions that could have a substantial impact on our future.

The essential thrust of Van Schalkwyk's latest book, the title of which in my view may be accurate but would have benefited from further consideration, is that democracy has been dangerously imperilled by a wide variety of insidious practices, many the outcome of deliberately conceived conspiracies. Though I note that the book has been written with an American audience as its target - it is published by an American firm and uses American spelling - there is little doubt that it carries overt messages for South Africans.

However, Discovery's recently announced venture into the Chinese health insurance market may end up pointing out the flaws in South Africa's proposed National Health Insurance scheme and thereby provide a needed tonic for its tainted public persona at home.
