Coming up on Carte Blanche
this Sunday (12 November):
Juju’s Day of Reckoning
Over the years, ANC youth league leader Julius Malema has become the face of controversial public utterances, prompting political observers to ponder his popularity.
He’s been depicted as everything from a bull in a china shop to a belligerent baby in nappies, yet he has a following and, reportedly, a fat bank account. With a resounding “guilty” verdict and his suspension from the party he repeatedly brought into disrepute, will he, like mavericks before him, fade into obscurity, or will Julius remain true to the ANC?

Maybe Eastern Cape State hospitals will eventually lose their reputation as those to which you’d definitely not want to be admitted. Carte Blanche met a man on a mission to expose the lazy and corrupt.

Carte Blanche is on M-Net on Sundays at 19h00.
