Dukwana Unravels Free State Corruption
Former Free State MEC Mxolisi Dukwana is like a walking encyclopaedia on Free State corruption. His latest affidavit and testimony at the Zondo commission implicate officials, businessmen, pastors and police, and placed his former comrade, ANC Secretary General Ace Magashule at the centre of this patronage network. Carte Blanche visits the Free State to see the projects Dukwana says are corrupt.

Dodgy Pool Deals
With at least 71 unhappy customers, a history of poor workmanship and non-delivery going back at least two years, Carte Blanche investigates the empty promises made by a Johannesburg pool contractor, who takes deposits but leaves clients high and dry. Winning new business with stunning proposals and claims of having finished 300 pools, expectant clientele part with up to R60 000 for their sparkling new pool, but after some basic digging and concrete work, the job remains undone.

Meet South Africa’s very own cowboys – and girls – who proudly strut their stuff in the 150-year-old death-defying tradition of rodeo riding. Traditionally thought of as a man’s game, rodeo is a thrilling and dangerous extreme sport with millions of followers worldwide. Carte Blanche meets cowboys-in-training and the 22-year-old cowgirl who take on 800 kilograms of pure fury in the eight seconds of glory.
