CELEBRATION: South Africa’s Paralympic Heroes
When you meet Ntando Mahlangu, a young unassuming man with an infectious laugh, you’d be forgiven for not knowing that he is in fact a double Paralympic gold medallist with a new world record in long jump to his name. And he’s in good company because alongside Anrune Weyers and Pieter du Preez, they proudly represented Team SA at the Paralympic Games and brought home the gold. (Producer: Diana Lucas | Presenter: Claire Mawisa)
Carte Blanche presenter Claire Mawisa says: “SA’s Paralympic athletes have remarkable stories of triumphing over adversity – heroes in the true sense of the word.”

REPORTAGE: Murder for Insurance
She was a woman who enjoyed living in comfort, but her salary as a police constable just wasn’t enough to fund all her expenses. So, from 2012, with a few funeral policies in hand, Nomia Rosemary Ndlovu cooked up a deadly plan to secure herself a steady income from unsuspecting relatives. That is what prosecutors are alleging in a high-profile court case in which they believe Ndlovu’s desire not to get her own hands dirty might prove to be her undoing. Carte Blanche unravels this tale of murder for insurance policy pay-outs. (Producer: Nicky Troll | Research: Laura Byrne | Presenter: Claire Mawisa)
South Africa’s embattled tourism industry is reeling from yet another blow as the United Kingdom insists on keeping the country on its dreaded COVID red list, forcing returning UK visitors into expensive ten-day hotel quarantines. The UK has also announced that it will now consider fully-vaccinated visitors from certain countries, including South Africa, as unvaccinated – a move experts say isn’t based on science. Carte Blanche examines these startling regulations. (Producer: Diana Lucas | Research: Laura Byrne | Presenter: Masa Kekana)

CONFRONTATION: Retirement Homes: Peggy’s Ordeal
She may have been 95 years old, but Peggy Chandler still loved her independence. Living at a retirement village in KwaZulu-Natal, where she would get healthy cooked meals and a cleaning service, allowed her enough freedom to still live alone. But when Peggy seriously injured herself inside her flat, why did it take almost a week for management in the retirement village to realise something was terribly wrong? Carte Blanche investigates. (Producer: Carol Albertyn Christie | Presenter: Masa Kekana)
