In small-town Western Cape, a 13-year-old boy never made it home after spending the afternoon with a friend. CCTV footage later emerged showing young Jerobejin van Wyk being chased down by a bakkie on that fateful day in February, apparently just moments after picking fruit from a private garden. Behind the wheel was Daniel Smit, now behind bars and awaiting trial for the childโ€™s murder. Carte Blanche travels to Klawer, a dusty and troubled town, to try and unravel what could possibly have led to the killing and whether โ€“ as is claimed by some โ€“ it was a ritual murder or simply brutal but opportunist violence.
