In 2014, Zinakile Fica died in police custody in KwaZulu-Natal. A forensic pathologist concluded that an old apartheid-era asphyxiation method called "tubing" was likely the cause of the heart attack he had suffered. To what extent do police still use this terrifying torture tactic today? An investigation uncovers how some members of the police service are still using this method to torment people in police custody.

Last year, we investigated the allegations made by several young mothers that the delivery of their babies at the birthing home of one of Pretoriaโ€™s foremost midwives had gone wrong. A handful of women submitted complaints to the South African Nursing Council (SANC), the government body responsible for registering midwives and assuring their qualifications. As SANC prepares to investigate and hear evidence on the professional conduct of midwife Yolande Maritz from You & Me birthing home, Carte Blanche speaks to several more women who reached out after our first exposรฉ in October. While Maritz steadfastly denies all adverse claims against her practice and conduct, we ask what led to the birth injuries and deaths of these babies.
