[WATCH] Showmax drops trailer for ‘Steinheist’ documentary series

The Steinhoff scandal has become known as the biggest corporate scam in South Africa's history.

"The Steinhoff crash wiped more than R200bn off the Johannesburg Stock Exchange, erased more than half the wealth of tycoon Christo Wiese and knocked the pension funds of millions of ordinary South Africans."

That's the scandal in a nutshell, as summarised on the back cover of Rob Rose's book 'Steinheist: Markus Jooste, Steinhoff and SA's Biggest Corporate Fraud'.

Showmax is launching its three-part documentary series "Steinheist" this September.

It promises to untangle the story of "the investors who were taken in; the victims and the CEO, Markus Jooste, who's still a free man."
