An expert looks into whether the giant trove of leaked emails is being managed responsibly.

South Africans have been gripped by stories gleaned from the biggest data dump in the country – between 100,000 and 200,000 emails leaked by an anonymous source to journalists.

The Conversation’s Ozayr Patel asked Professor Franz Krüger how journalists should respond to leaks of this kind.
