The annual Carlos Cardoso Memorial Lecture commemorates a Wits graduate and Mozambican journalist assassinated in the streets of Maputo in 2001 while investigating corruption at the country’s biggest bank and involving senior political figures. This year’s speaker, lawyer Beatrice Mtetwa, is a prominent freedom of expression campaigner in Zimbabwe, a country where journalists have been frequently harassed and persecuted. Mtetwa has defended journalists at great personal risk. In 2005, she won the International Press Freedom Award of the Committee to Protect Journalists. Pic by: Madelene Cronjé
