In 2014, Eastern Cape lawyer, Zuko Nonxuba, allegedly set into motion a sinister plan to defraud the desperate families of children with severe disabilities. It's claimed he pilfered millions in medical payouts from the Department of Health by manipulating the mothers of children born with cerebral palsy and pocketing the millions meant for their care. It’s a legal scandal that went on for years while the Legal Practice Council (LPC) – the profession’s statutory oversight body - looked on. Now, the Constitutional Court has finally ruled on Nonxuba’s suspension and, inspired by our investigation, some of South Africa’s top legal minds have come together to fight for the children. As Nonxuba finally gets his comeuppance, Carte Blanche puts the failings of the LPC under the spotlight.
