We start our story in the business premises and home of private investigator Mike Bolhuis. He leads us into the world of assassinations in South Africa and how the industry is linked to networks of organized crime. We are introduced to Wandile Bozwana who was killed in October 2015 while stopped at a red traffic light on the N1 Garsfontein-offramp in Pretoria. He was shot nine times and a detail that stands out (that his driver Mpho Baloyi relayed in court) was that during the shooting Bozwana rolled over her to try and shield her from the fire. He tried to catch as many of the bullets with his own body as possible so Mpho wouldn’t be hurt. Despite this Mpho was shot twice but was able to drive them both to Unitas Hospital in Pretoria where she received help and Bozwana promptly died at the age of 43.
