Coming Up on Carte Blanche: Zimbabwe, Stock Theft and Mass Surveillance

Here’s this week’s extended 90-minute Carte Blanche line-up, available for South Africans in SA on Sunday and for expats from Tuesday on Showmax International.

Stock Theft

Usually when a criminal is sentenced to serve time behind bars, that marks the end of his unlawful activities. But one scamster in the Free State has been running a sophisticated operation, stealing from desperate farmers – seemingly from within his cell – inside Kroonstad Prison. From cattle, to sheep – livestock theft has been taken to a whole new level.  Carte Blanche investigates this cunning conman.
