In the Eastern Cape, a fierce battle is brewing in the legal fraternity. A highly contested report has recommended that the seat of the Eastern Cape High Court be moved from Makhanda โ€“ formerly known as Grahamstown โ€“ to the provinceโ€™s capital city, Bhisho. Itโ€™s a move that many in Makhanda didnโ€™t see coming, and residents believe it will turn the struggling community into a ghost town. Research suggests that if the move goes ahead, one-third of Makhandaโ€™s businesses will lose so many customers that theyโ€™ll have to shut down, and the unemployment rate will skyrocket. So, why would government risk destroying this historical town? Carte Blanche investigates. Find more exclusive content on Carte Blanche: The Podcast: https://linktr.ee/carteblanchetv
