Profile:
Journalist and Guest Speaker Mandy Wiener's book Killing Kebble – An Underworld Exposed, has sold in excess of 66 000 copies, was chosen as Jenny Crwys-Williams’ Book of The Year of 2011 and was shortlisted for the prestigious Sunday Times Alan Paton Non-Fiction Award. She has also edited a series of books called The Youngsters, featuring five young celebrity authors. Wiener has a BA degree from Rand Afrikaans University (UJ). She began her career at RAU Radio before interning at the 702 traffic desk and call screening on the graveyard shift. She subsequently became a news reporter at EWN and has not looked back since.

Mandy gives a behind the scenes account of the story of Brett Kebble’s murder and the conviction of the country’s late Police Commissioner Jackie Selebi on corruption charges. She details the genesis of these two cases and how they ultimately resulted in a bestselling book. She reveals Joburg’s lawless underbelly dominated by drug lords, steroid-filled bouncers, an international smuggling syndicate, a shady security unit moonlighting for the police and sinister self-serving sleuths abusing state agencies. Indemnified by an agreement struck with the state, Kebble’s killers Mikey Schultz, Nigel McGurk and Faizel “Kappie” Smith came clean to Mandy in exclusive interviews about the events of the night Kebble was shot dead. As she unpacks the chilling events you are given insight into the accounts of the life paths leading the “bungling assassins” to Kebble’s killing.

Mandy provides analysis of the current state of the police service following the controversies around Selebi, his successor Bheki Cele and suspended head of Crime Intelligence Richard Mdluli. She looks at the series of underworld deaths that have gone unsolved in South Africa over the past few years and the relationship between business, politics and organized crime and the crucial role played by civil society in the fight against crime and corruption.
