She ruins it all in Mpumalanga – Part 3

Part 3 - In this three part series, Shauna sets off - accompanied by two other experts, "drinking, drugging Max" and "bossy-boots, know-it-all ... Laura" - to conduct research on a multi-million dollar concession meant to provide municipal water and sanitation services in Mpumalanga province, South Africa. But what was supposed to be a quest for objective answers tipped dangerously towards a somewhat compromised report at the expense of the poor. One of the researchers was in bed with the private company! Literally. However, a relentless local matriarch, aware of her rights, was not going to stand by and watch as day light robbery was being committed by the water company with the blessing of a researcher on the springboard of garrulity.
