Driven Hunt II

By Thursday morning a band of 13 European hunters had killed 49 animals in a ongoing Driven Hunt in Limpopo province.  Animal activists this week descended on the farms where the animals were killed, vehemently protesting the controversial practice. Local and international outrage has followed last Sunday’s Carte Blanche exposé of the hunt, which sees game herded down a dedicated path toward hunters waiting on raised scaffolds. Carte Blanche remains in hot pursuit.

Zithulele’s Medical Miracles **NEW INSERT**

Ten years ago Zithulele hospital, located in the remote Eastern Cape, was falling apart. The hospital serves a marginalized population of around 300 000 people and had, at the time, only 2 permanent staff members. Then a newly graduated couple looking for a place to serve arrived with a pioneering approach and passion sufficient to lure 18 colleagues to the rural outpost. Carte Blanche meets the doctors who have put down roots in the humble community and made Zithulele a first class medical facility.

Secrets of the Rising Star Cave

On a Friday evening in 2013, two extreme cavers found themselves deep below ground in the Cradle of Humankind. Coming across a narrow crack in the cave floor, they descended down a twelve metre shaft and emerged into a chamber only to discover ancient bones. Carte Blanche reports on the extraordinary scientific discovery of a new species of human relative - Homo Naledi.
