DStv to Feature Documentary on Human Trafficking in Malawi
This Sunday on January 8, Carte Blanche, M-Net’s multiple award-winning investigative journalism programme on DStv, will screen a thought-provoking insert on human trafficking in Malawi. The segment documents the treacherous journey of many Malawian migrants, who brave illegal border crossings and ruthless human traffickers for a new life in South Africa.
The programme focuses on the perils of illegal immigrants who flock to South Africa, in search of better living conditions. Revealing the countless dangers that they face while crossing the border, the insert also spotlights their harsh experiences both during their journey and once they arrive in the country.
Almost an estimated one third of the Malawian population (which is about 6 million) currently reside in South Africa.
Carte Blanche, which produces of some of the continent’s best investigative journalism, came to Malawi and visited Mzimba District to assess the scale of the problem. There, they interviewed survivors of human trafficking.
Carte Blanche airs on M-Net and M-Net HD [channel 101] on Sunday 8 January 2017 at 19:00 and again on M-Net Plus 1 [channel 901] at 20:00. The re-broadcasts are on Monday at 06:00 and 10:30. _*Source: Multichoice Malawi_*
