South Africaโ€™s struggling rail commuter network, PRASA took a hard financial knock when commuter services were disrupted during level 5 COVID-19 lockdown. As services were suspended and only skeleton staff remained, PRASA infrastructure was ransacked. Then land invaders took up residence on the railway tracks in Cape Townโ€™s Langa township. Now, with just a handful of commuters getting back into coaches, itโ€™s not clear how PRASA plans to recoup its losses. Could hope be on the horizon as the government puts a new community-driven security plan on the table? #CarteBlanche #lockdown #CableTheft #CopperTheft #Infrastructure #Train #Trains #Railway #InformalSettlement #PRASA #CapeTown

Have you heard of diesel skimming? Itโ€™s a little-known, illegal operation where hundreds of truck drivers make unscheduled pit stops to allow criminals to siphon off several litres of fuel from their trucks in exchange for hard cash. The transaction is quick. The money is easy. And itโ€™s unsuspecting consumers who could be forking out extra in transport fees. Carte Blanche goes undercover to expose one major syndicate on Johannesburgโ€™s East Rand. -- Visit the Carte Blanche official site: https://mnet.dstv.com/show/carte-blanche Find us on Catch Up: https://bit.ly/32VvbU5 Stream the show live on DStv Now: https://bit.ly/3l92LhH Watch more series and movies on Showmax, start your 14-day free trial here: https://bit.ly/36PFSr0 Get DStv: https://bit.ly/3edx58V Like Carte Blanche on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/carteblanchetv/ Follow Carte Blanche on Twitter: https://twitter.com/carteblanchetv/ Be a fan on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/carteblanchetv/ #carteblanche #petrolprice #fuelpricehike #fuelprice #expensive #investigation #crime
