SONA: the aftermath

President Jacob Zuma remains in the eye of the SONA storm. Debate around last week’s address saw opposition parties pull no punches with the president labeled everything from ‘A broken man presiding over a broken society’, to a man telling a so-called good story. Carte Blanche tests the energy of swelling political dissent and asks: can we afford to take the Constitution for granted?

Producer: Jane Lipman

Presenter: John Webb

Choosing circumcision

As the son of an English father and a Xhosa mother, Litha Coleman doesn’t see himself as black, white or coloured. In search of meaning, heritage and a cultural identity, he shares rare insight into his decision to be circumcised through traditional Xhosa rituals. Carte Blanche follows his journey, every step of the way.

Producer: Bernadette Maguire

Presenter: John Webb

Money or medals?

Only hours of grueling training and commitment will see them join the ranks of the world’s super athletes. But despite the fact that South Africa’s top Olympic athletes live, train and compete on shoestring budgets well below what their international peers earn, their spirit is unwavering. Carte Blanche meets the Olympic hopefuls who sacrifice all for dreams of gold and glory.

Producer: Kate Barry

Presenter: Devi Sankaree Govender
