Gentrifying the Inner City?

No matter what state it’s in now, many still called the building home. Tarryn Crossman produces this insert that looks into what occurred after the Red Ants moved in evicting residents and disposing of their belongings. Can these flats ever return to its former glory? Macfarlane Moleli presents this segment.
The N2 between KZN and Eastern Cape is a treacherous route. Violent looters roam the area looting cargo from passing trucks. Costing the economy billions, Nicky Troll produces this insert where the question is asked: what is being done to stop the looting? Presented by Devi Sankaree Govender.
