It’s February in Pretoria. Two young men, apparently mistaken for intruders near the home of a high-ranking army officer, disappear. According to witnesses, the men were allegedly assaulted by soldiers guarding the house – all while two senior South African Defence Force officers purportedly stood by. Three low-ranking soldiers are arrested and charged with kidnapping and assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm. Neither senior officer is ever arrested. While the case is postponed for further investigation, families grieve. But will they ever learn the truth behind their loved ones’ disappearance and supposed death? Carte Blanche investigates a case of selective prosecution and asks: could army generals be implicated in a cover-up?
