Some of South Africa's best-known citizens have found a final resting place in Johannesburg's Westpark Cemetery, and their funerals can draw massive crowds. Often, ceremonial gun salutes are fired in their honour โ€“ especially in the case of military veterans and ANC VIPs. Increasingly, residents in surrounding suburbs are forced to run for cover as stray bullets, allegedly from these funerals, rain down on their neighbourhood and homes. Carte Blanche takes up the inquiry as an elderly resident, who lives more than a kilometre away, ended up getting seriously injured by a random bullet during one of these burials.

Last year, we investigated the allegations made by several young mothers that the delivery of their babies at the birthing home of one of Pretoriaโ€™s foremost midwives had gone wrong. A handful of women submitted complaints to the South African Nursing Council (SANC), the government body responsible for registering midwives and assuring their qualifications. As SANC prepares to investigate and hear evidence on the professional conduct of midwife Yolande Maritz from You & Me birthing home, Carte Blanche speaks to several more women who reached out after our first exposรฉ in October. While Maritz steadfastly denies all adverse claims against her practice and conduct, we ask what led to the birth injuries and deaths of these babies.

She was a popular pick for expectant parents but, with a number of new-born babies dead and three others with cerebral palsy in just four years, allegations of negligence are mounting against a well-known midwife operating in Gauteng. But thereโ€™s more to it: Furious parents claim their babies were injured after they were given potentially harmful drugs at her clinic to induce and speed up labour without their consent and some private gynaecologists have refused to work with her. Carte Blanche investigates what went wrong in these cases.
