Johannesburg Parent and Child Counselling Centre (JPCCC)

04 June
The JPCCC has provided counselling and support to children and their families since 1944. The organisation operates from offices and schools in Johannesburg and Soweto. It has also expanded its services to the Schaumburg informal settlement in the North West Province, where JPCCC serves a large community beset by high unemployment and a heavy HIV/Aids burden. The local Schaumburg preschool was housed in a container donated by the Coca Cola Foundation and the Bright Kids Foundation, situated on grounds belonging to the Lutheran Mission School. In 2008, Carte Blanche undertook to reflect JPCCCโ€™s interventions and told the story of some of the children living in the informal settlement of Schaumburg, including families headed by orphans.

Itโ€™s home to the Masterโ€™s Office that administers deceased estates and oversees liquidations - some involving major companies under investigation for millions made in the state capture years. Among the liquidators' responsibilities is attempting to recover money owed to creditors. Cloete Murray was the driving force in the liquidation of BOSASA, a company at the centre of serious allegations of fraud and corruption and owing substantial amounts to creditors including SARS. Murray wasnโ€™t afraid of asking difficult questions of the many company directors he investigated and there were attempts to remove him from the Bosasa case that went as high as the Supreme Court of Appeal. None was successful. Murrayโ€™s story is inextricably linked to those of two senior former officials in the Masterโ€™s Office who believe they were removed because of their role in Murrayโ€™s appointment to the Bosasa liquidation. Last year, Carte Blanche told this story, and interviewed Cloete Murray. But on Saturday he and his son were shot and killed in what is believed to have been an assassination. Carte Blanche investigates the final days before this dark and unspeakable crime took place. Your favourite episodes are now available on Carte Blanche: The Podcast: https://bit.ly/PodcastCB
