The economic crash that followed in the wake of COVID-19โ€™s lockdown measures has resulted in soaring unemployment. Temporary homeless tents and shacks are springing up across cities and, in Cape Town, this means between highways and in public spaces. Over 14000 homeless people live rough in the Mother City, with only enough temporary shelter for 2500. A U-turn Homeless Ministries report on the cost of homelessness in Cape Town shows that 45 percent of R744 million allocated to the homeless in the city is spent on enforcement, arresting and incarcerating the homeless. When Table Mountain was set ablaze from an unattended cooking fire earlier this year, the vitriol it unleashed about the Cityโ€™s handling of homeless people spiked tensions with ratepayers. Carte Blanche investigates why only 16 percent of available money is spent on long-term solutions.

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
