In 1977, working as a reporter at the Rand Daily Mail, Helen exposed the truth behind Steve Biko’s death.

As a result of this, she was prosecuted and found guilty by the Apartheid Press Council.

A prominent member of the Black Sash, Helen Zille had to go into hiding as a result of concealing ANC activists at her home during the 1986 state of emergency.
