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

Derek Watts: A special tribute
Where do you begin to eulogise a man who has meant so much to so many people? This Sunday, the Carte Blanche family stands together to pay tribute to our beloved colleague and friend, Derek Watts. Derek was a remarkable man, fearless in the pursuit of justice. He was a beacon for the forgotten and downtrodden, and a steadying hand amid chaos and anxiety. He embodied the ideal, “umntu ngumntu, ngabantu” (I am because you are), connecting with people from all walks of life and treating each with dignity and respect. He dedicated his life to telling South Africa’s story. In 1988, producer Bill Faure approached Derek to co-host a new show, Carte Blanche, which would air on M-Net every Sunday night. Forty years old, easy-going, sports mad... Derek might not have been an obvious choice, but his charisma and the chemistry he shared with co-host Ruda Landman created a dynamic partnership that audiences found irresistible. As Carte Blanche grew and evolved, covering the seminal moments of South Africa’s changing story, Derek too went from strength to strength. The stories he told reflected this: from reporting on the Boipatong Massacre where the crew filmed through the night as Derek confronted politicians and gave the victims and their families a much-needed voice, to traveling to the foot of Mount Everest and every possible corner of South Africa. In the 35 years he spent with the show, his passion never dimmed and he never lost his unique ability to connect with people. We will miss him tremendously, but we draw strength and inspiration from the incredible legacy he leaves behind. Our deepest condolences to his beloved Belinda, Tyrone, Kirsten, and his siblings. Lala ngoxolo Papa D, ugqatso ulufezile. Umzamo omhle uwuzamile. Rest in perfect peace. Your favourite episodes are now available on Carte Blanche: The Podcast: https://linktr.ee/carteblanchetv
