Pandering to Putin
𝗧𝗵𝗶𝘀 𝘀𝘁𝗼𝗿𝘆 𝗼𝗿𝗶𝗴𝗶𝗻𝗮𝗹𝗹𝘆 𝗮𝗶𝗿𝗲𝗱 𝗼𝗻 𝟳 𝗠𝗮𝘆 𝟮𝟬𝟮𝟯. The ANC’s political allegiance to its Cold War friend, Russia, is causing a political rumpus as a potential visit by Russian President Vladimir Putin forces the South African government to make tough choices. This includes whether it leaves the International Criminal Court (ICC) which may reset its already-damaged global reputation for the worse. The ICC has issued a warrant of arrest for Putin for the kidnapping of thousands of Ukrainian children during the conflict between the neighbours. As South Africa is a signatory to the Rome Statute – which underpins the ICC – it would be obliged to arrest Putin if he comes to South Africa for the BRICS summit in August. The Premier of the Western Cape, Alan Winde says he will get his unarmed Law Enforcement Advancement Plan (LEAP) officers to arrest Putin if he strays into the Western Cape, a province under the political control of the opposition. While this throws up the spectacle of the absurd, it has set the cat further among the pigeons, sending the government into a legal huddle as it tries to work out what to do next. Is this political hot potato just one more milestone in South Africa’s slow drift to isolationism, compounded by greylisting, industrial-scale corruption, and clumsy foreign policy?

Murray & Son
𝗧𝗵𝗶𝘀 𝘀𝘁𝗼𝗿𝘆 𝗼𝗿𝗶𝗴𝗶𝗻𝗮𝗹𝗹𝘆 𝗮𝗶𝗿𝗲𝗱 𝗼𝗻 𝟮𝟲 𝗠𝗮𝗿𝗰𝗵 𝟮𝟬𝟮𝟯. A tall building towers over Pretoria. It’s home to the Master’s Office that administers deceased estates and oversees liquidations - some involving major companies under investigation for millions made in the state capture years. Among the liquidators' responsibilities is attempting to recover money owed to creditors. Cloete Murray was the driving force in the liquidation of BOSASA, a company at the centre of serious allegations of fraud and corruption and owing substantial amounts to creditors including SARS. Murray wasn’t afraid of asking difficult questions of the many company directors he investigated and there were attempts to remove him from the Bosasa case that went as high as the Supreme Court of Appeal. None was successful. Murray’s story is inextricably linked to those of two senior former officials in the Master’s Office who believe they were removed because of their role in Murray’s appointment to the Bosasa liquidation. Last year, Carte Blanche told this story, and interviewed Cloete Murray. But on Saturday he and his son were shot and killed in what is believed to have been an assassination. Carte Blanche investigates the final days before this dark and unspeakable crime took place. Your favourite episodes are now available on Carte Blanche: The Podcast: https://linktr.ee/carteblanchetv
