PODCAST | Too Many Enemies: Episode 5 - Southern Africa’s assassinations crisis

This week, in the penultimate episode of Too Many Enemies, producer Paul McNally shifts his focus from the murder of billionaire Wandile Bozwana to investigate Southern Africa’s assassinations crisis and how terrifyingly commonplace hits have become in the region.

McNally goes back twenty years to one of the most infamous assassinations: the killing of acclaimed Mozambican journalist and editor Carlos Cardoso. Cardoso, who was investigating a $14-million fraud linked to the privatisation of Mozambique’s largest bank, was shot dead in central Maputo in November 2000.

TRAILER | Too Many Enemies

Wealthy businessman Wandile Bozwana met a violent end when he was gunned down in his car in Pretoria in October 2015.

Sadly Bozwana’s death is not unique, and bears many of the hallmarks seen in other assassinations in South Africa. That Bozwana had political connections also reflects a trend of political rivalries being settled through violence.

Bozwana’s alleged killers are on trial only now, six years after his death, perhaps reflecting the corrosive impact that intimidation and violence has had on South Africa’s criminal justice system.
