Another year, another debacle for South African cricket. After a promising win against India, defeat to Pakistan and then โ€“ of all countries - The Netherlands sent the Proteaโ€™s crashing out of the T20 World Cup in Adelaide. Itโ€™s the latest in a series of painful exits from the 50 and 20 over global showdown since re-admission in 1992. Always full of promise, the Proteas have consistently failed to deliver โ€“ the much-maligned "chokers" tag weighing ever more heavily. Years of maladministration, with hundreds of millions of rands in losses, have left the game in an existential crisis at a time when the very nature of world cricket is changing, and cricket boards are all turning to domestic T20 leagues for financial salvation. How does South African cricket pick itself up and move forward in a time of upheaval for the world game?

In November last year, a ten-year-old girl was found during a routine traffic roadblock, squashed inside the luggage compartment of a long-distance bus. She had been smuggled from Zimbabwe into South Africa under extreme conditions for several hours. But her case isnโ€™t unusual. In this months-long investigation, Carte Blanche unravels alleged cross-border human trafficking and the shadowy figures known as transporters who are making it all possible. Undocumented foreign nationals are lured to South Africa from numerous African countries โ€“ many of them ending up on the streets of Johannesburg North. Thousands of Malawians are lured into the country on the promise of a new life, some smuggled by long-haul bus companies and funeral parlours, only to be forced into sex work and manual labour. In an even more sinister twist, many of the victims are coerced into taking out funeral policies on themselves once they reach South Africa. Itโ€™s an unusual demand but a guaranteed income as the transporters cash in on vulnerable undocumented foreign nationals.
