Mandy Wiener interviews Eyewitness News reporter Masechaba Sefular.

Carl Niehaus laid fraud and corruption charges against top ANC officials on Wednesday.

He was fired last week after failing to explain to the party why he invited journalists to watch him lay criminal complaints against the ANC’s top five for failing to pay salaries.

“It would have been that we have cried wolf without acting,” said Niehaus.

“We cannot allow criminal activity to go unchecked, nor can we allow whistleblowing, and laying of charges against those that in our minds have committed serious financial maladministration and crimes to be intimidated not to do so.”
