Correspondent Krishnan Guru-Murthy and producer Alex Nott report from South Africa.
Seventeen years after apartheid, it's a country plagued by violent protests, riddled with corruption and hanging in the balance. Modern, fast-growing Johannesburg is the centre of Africa's biggest economy, yet home to a desperately poor underclass and 182 squatter camps. Guru-Murthy visits one of the biggest and most dangerous, Diepsloot - home to 200,000 people and ruled by mob justice- where they go undercover and expose shockingly crooked local government officials. The investigative team then turns its attention to the man many tip as a future president: Julius Malema, president ofthe ANC's Youth League. Exactly how is he building a £1.5m mansion on his modest ANC salary?
