It’s been a helluva week in South African news. More evidence on Nkandla, Helen Zille going nuclear on The New Age, the SABC’s failure to secure live broadcast rights to the Proteas’ Test series against Pakistan – it’s enough to bring you down. But here at the Daily Maverick, we discovered something this week to lift the spirits. It’s the pilot of a local mockumentary called Armed Response – and hopefully someone has the guts to turn it into a TV series. By REBECCA DAVIS.
