    S3: Too Many Enemies E2: Spotlight on Supra Mahumapelo

    S3: Too Many Enemies E2: Spotlight on Supra Mahumapelo

    In this episode we focus on South African politician, Supra Mahumapelo, and how he was allegedly involved with the deceased, Wandile Bozwana. There have been significant and repetitive accusations against Supra that he was the man who ordered the hit against Bozwana. What makes the accusations against Supra ordering the murder more compelling is that it was echoed by a gang member. The gang member turned state witness and filed an affidavit with the Gauteng police’s Provincial Investigations Unit. In the affidavit he claimed that Supra ordered the hit on Bozwana. Supra has vehemently denied any involvement, but we speak to an anonymous source who believes there is evidence in the police docket to the contrary.Hosted & produced by Paul McNally.Produced by the Global Initiative Against Transnational Organized Crime and Volume.Music by Oman MoríMore at www.alibiinvestigations.com.

Complex

Excellent, complex, detailed South African investigative crime show. In season 1, the reporters do not accept what the accused tells them at face value — they investigate it and, at times, they even catch him lying. But is he guilty of the crimes he was convicted of? In season 2, it’s a truly bizarre, maze-like trail into a high school teacher murdered by a hitman. Everyone who speaks to the reporter is scared for their lives.
