ANC top figure has been implicated as a "person of interest" in the assassination of corruption whistleblower Babita Deokaran who served in the Gauteng Department of health as this case takes a different twist.

Reports have it that senior ANC figure who hasn't been named yet had become a "person of interest" in the assassination of Gauteng Department of Health whistleblower Babita Deokaran, as a crack team of Hawks investigators circle the governing party in search of the paymaster behind the slaying.

According to News24, sources, who have first-hand knowledge of the unfolding investigation, the ANC figure implicated in the assassination of Babita Deokaran had occupied prominent positions in government and remained influential in the party.

Award-winning news anchor, Redi Tlhabi said this now makes sense because there was no way random people would just drive all the way from Kwa-Zulu Natal to Gauteng to assassinate a senior official without being given intel by those in high offices.

"Yes!...Good! because a couple of random guys didn't just drive from KZN to Gauteng to assassinate a senior official, who happens to be a whistleblower in serious corruption cases," she said.

Several suspects have been arrested, some already in appeared court, but remains in detention as investigations are underway.

The assassination of Gauteng Department of Health whistleblower Babita Deokaran angered many as they raised concerns about how whistleblowers aren't protected in South Africa, yet ironically those who are corrupt have so much security in their homes and even bodyguards when they go out in the public.

Some critics however have doubts if the ANC top official implicated as a person of interest will ever face the consequences as most cases always begin like this, but lose momentum later on for instance, the case of Senzo Meyiwa, it's been years and law enforcement agencies have not been able to crack the case.

"It's just vibed to sound like they're doing something, I don't think anything will come out of it, just like the Bozwana and Senzo Meyiwa cases," some said.
