Alibi Series 2 - Laduma High.

Volume’s award-winning investigative journalist Paul McNally wades into the conspiracy-laden world of professional jealousy and hired hit-men in an attempt to find out what really happened at Laduma High, and who was behind the assassination of Priscilla Mchunu.

Priscilla Mchunu was a 54-year-old acting principal when she was assassinated. She was gunned down with an astonishing 19 bullets while teaching her high school history class. An entire class of Laduma High students watched her murder and still, more than two years later, no arrests have been made.

This is the story of Priscilla’s assassination. Who would kill an acting principal and why? How do you investigate a case when anyone who gets too close can be assassinated?

“Alibi 2: Laduma High” is produced by Volume and distributed by Arena Holdings.

Having combed the country’s crime landscape of shootouts, murders, brutal killings, rape cases and suicides... Romy Titus had encountered it all as a hard news journalist. But nothing she had previously experienced compared to how her heart felt seeing innocent young infants and toddlers locked up for crimes they did not commit. Years later she started an NGO to assist these mothers to raise their children and ensure that while they are behind bars, they’re as happy and healthy as they can be. This podcast tells the stories of some of these women - how they ended up pregnant and in prison, and the experience of having their babies behind bars.
