Cape weather storms and the Knysna blaze

Up to 10 000 people were forced to evacuate their homes as fires fuelled by strong winds ripped through the sleepy town of Knysna. Scores of homes have been gutted and several buildings destroyed in what’s been called one of the worst disasters to hit the town in decades. Further across the province, dramatic weather patterns have brought raging storms to the Mother City, wreaking havoc and leaving thousands homeless.

Tender Fraud

Through a clever tender fraud scam, small businesses are targeted to provide specialist equipment to government. The orders aren’t real. It’s just a ploy to get businesses to pay huge deposits. These sophisticated fraudsters have already crippled several businesses who’ve lost hundreds of thousands. Carte Blanche follows the leads, connects the dots and exposes the web of deception behind this con.

Duduzane Zuma

As more details emerge in leaked emails about alleged corrupt business activities relating to state entities and Gupta run companies, Duduzane Zuma, the President’s son has taken centre stage in the growing controversy. From being just an intern a few years ago to his meteoric rise into powerful positions in numerous Gupta-linked businesses – Zuma has become the man of the moment. So is he just a pawn in the Gupta empire or the ultimate king maker?  Carte Blanche investigates the man behind the headlines.

Producer: Graham Coetzer
Presenter: Devi Sankaree Govender

Namola

A crime fighting solution right at your fingertips? A locally designed and tested app could soon become the solution to crime. Using smart phone technology, Namola allows users to alert the nearest police officers when they need assistance and promises to reduce emergency response times, down to as little as 90 seconds. Carte Blanche puts it to the test.
