The week from hell. No one could train you for what we have witnessed on the frontline. Those on the frontline all knew the presence of each other, it was enough to understand we were not going to back down from this Zuma fraction. Lack of sleep, camaraderie, dead bodies, being shot at, this was the taste of war. There was no time to think about tomorrow or next week.
From Cato Ridge to Central Durban, just pure adrenaline for days on end. The week we did not back down. The week we were willing to die for our country.
Over 9 days, more than 330 people have died in some of the worst violence South Africa has experienced since apartheid.

Collision Course is a heart thumping story told in 24 hours that dives deep into the lives of a law enforcement agent, a young man and some rogue elements(Tarz). It explores the seedy underbelly of rogue law enforcement officers and the atrocious results as they collide head on with a frustrated young man and a conflicted member of the police force. Collision is a race against time in a haze of palpable tension; it is a powder keg tethering on the brink of imminent combustion.
