The Zuma Years

For years, President Jacob Zuma has been dogged by allegations of deception, corruption, and nepotism. He insists he’s done nothing wrong and believes he still enjoys the support of all South Africans, but pressure is mounting on the ruling ANC to force Zuma to resign.   After a tumultuous ride and as the wheels continue to come off, Carte Blanche tracks a near decade under the Zuma Presidency.

Producer: Eugene Botha
Presenter: Macfarlane Moleli

The State Legal Wars

From the review of the Public Protector’s State of Capture report, to the Constitutional Court ruling that the National Assembly failed to hold president Jacob Zuma to account – state institutions often have to appear before some of the country’s highest courts.  At any given time, there are hundreds of ongoing cases against national, provincial and local departments – and in many cases the government keeps losing. Justified litigation, or a taxpayers’ burden?

Producer: Esté de Klerk and Marzanne van den Berg
Presenter:  Devi Sankaree Govender

CemAir Grounded

Last week local airline CemAir had several of its aircraft grounded due to questions around their airworthiness certificates. With flights suspended, frustrated passengers scurried to make alternative arrangements. In a statement CemAir said they were hopeful that they’d be taking to the skies soon, but insiders say that’s only the beginning of their problems. Carte Blanche investigates.

Thrown from a Moving Train

In April 2016 Darryn August was left paralysed after being violently flung from a moving train in an attempt to protect a pregnant woman from gangsters. This real-life superhero’s story of bravery has since inspired people across the nation and he’s received waves of support from fellow South Africans. But is there more to this story?

Producer: Liz Fish
Presenters: John Webb and Derek Watts
