A Criminal's Paradise

2 EPISODES |  Podcast, ±18 min episode every 1 hour
South Africa is in the depths of a crime crisis. More than 6 000 people were murdered in the first three months of this year alone. Recently, police minister Bheki Cele revealed that 10 000 women were raped in the same time period. Mob justice appears to be on the rise in South Africa, as people lose faith in the criminal justice system.

In a two-part podcast, A Criminal's Paradise, we examine three cases of victims let down by the criminal justice system. Three women, three different crimes, three different sets of socio-economic circumstances, but one common thread runs through their cases – a police service that failed to protect them.

Last year, Cabinet announced that the Zimbabwean Exemption Permit (ZEP), which ended on 31 December 2021, will not be extended.

Government decided on a 12-month grace period during which time ZEP holders “should apply for other permits appropriate to their particular status or situation”.

However, those who are unsuccessful would have to return to Zimbabwe or face deportation.

This decision has heightened anxiety for over 200 000 people affected by the government decision and threatens lives and livelihoods.
