Recently the award winning news series Carte Blanche did an expose on the under ground world of Diesel Skimming operations. We have referred to these diesel skimming operations as a “Diesel Shebeens“.
Have a look at the video done by the carte blanche team.
Have you heard of diesel skimming? It’s a little-known, illegal operation where hundreds of truck drivers make unscheduled pit stops to allow criminals to siphon off several litres of fuel from their trucks in exchange for hard cash. The transaction is quick. The money is easy. And it’s unsuspecting consumers who could be forking out extra in transport fees. Carte Blanche goes undercover to expose one major syndicate on Johannesburg’s East Rand.
