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. GuptaLeaks gave South Africans the facts and Indentured will give the reader the understanding and depth of the true nature of the Zuma-Gupta cabal.
