The Public Protector of South Africa, Thuli Madonsela, has decided to conduct a preliminary investigation into my case regarding corruption enabling rhino poaching.
I have a lot more to say, but right now I am just very grateful that we made it this far. And so I am going to step away from the drama and enjoy the day at Phinda, my most precious wild wonderland. A huge heartfelt thanks to everyone out there that shared the stories and fought for justice against all odds. This is only the beginning. Let us be relentless.
