Bloemfontein is home to the University of the Free State and the Central University of Technology. It’s now a bona fide student town as thousands flock to these campuses from around the country. But there isn’t enough on-site accommodation to house them all; conditions ripe for manipulation. Some have spotted a lucrative opportunity to illegally convert their own homes into crowded student digs., or to build cramped digs on any available open stand.

Residents who’ve for years called these once quiet suburbs home, now contend with overflowing sewage, raucous parties, and plummeting property prices. Carte Blanche goes knocking.
