WARNING: this story contains graphic descriptions of abuse and sexual assault. When businesswoman, Nozi Xamlashe , was pulled over by a police officer in Mthatha, in the Eastern Cape, she could not have known how the interaction that followed would one day change her life. The officer asked for her phone number and when she declined his advances, he made a chilling threat, one he would brutally fulfil months later while she was working at her hair salon. But Xamlasheโ€™s is just one of many terrifying encounters Mthatha residents say theyโ€™ve had with the police. In this community โ€“ one of the top three most violent in the country โ€“ residents say far from being enforcers of the law, the police are often part of the problem. Carte Blanche investigates missing dockets and dirty cops at Mthathaโ€™s two police stations, where cases of violent crime go uninvestigated.
