Investigating crime stories and giving a voice to victims and their families is a difficult task, but Kuier journalist and TV personality Ernusta Maralack sees it as her privilege and an honour in real-life crime doccie series Op Seer Se Spoor.
Season 2 of this SAFTA-nominated series starts at the end of April on kykNET&kie (145), and this time Ernusta will travel to more provinces including the Western Cape, Northern Cape, Gauteng and the Eastern Cape. “This gives us the opportunity to tell more stories than we could in the first season, when we only stayed in the Western Cape,” says Ernusta. If you’re not home when the show airs, use DStv Now to stream it wherever you are.
The 13-episode season is also split into themes, reveals the presenter. “We take a look into violence against women and children, police cruelty, suicide, and gruesome murders.” Ernusta will also be taking an in-depth look at the motives and social conditions driving these crimes.
