A senior broadcast journalist from India is headhunted to lead the team that's been tasked to launch the latest privately owned 24-hour television news channel in South Africa. He is lured with promises of a unique professional challenge, but soon he will learn how the influential family who had hired him and the highest office in the country are inextricably linked in a bid to create a propaganda tool that will not only advance a clear political agenda, but also position itself to loot state coffers of millions of rand. Indentured: Behind the Scenes at Gupta TV is Rajesh Sundaram's story of how he led a small team of Indian broadcast professionals and South African interns to launch the television news channel ANN7 under the power-grabbing and money-hungry mogul Atul Gupta and his cronies. Gupta Leaks gave South Africans the facts and Indentured will give the reader the understanding and depth of the true nature of the Zuma-Gupta cabal.
