Justice Served

Tshepo “Ty” Skosana, creative director of Meraki Studios makes a profound statement on South Africa’s untapped potential in the hit thriller, Justice Served.


Distributed by Netflix, the series was released on the 29th of July 2022, featuring some of South Africa’s prominent actors such as Hlomla Dandala, Pallance Dladla, and Morne Visser.
The plot of the series follows a band of freedom fighters known as the Numoor, who invade the trial of a white police officer — Allan Harvey.
That shoot a Black man from the back and the Numoor use this opportunity as a hostage situation unfolds that leaves the entire country flabbergasted.
Numoor leader Azania Maqoma played by Hlomla Dladla gives everyday South Africans the choice to vote on whether to find Allan Harvey played by Morne Visser Guilty or Innocent.
Now what I found extremely fresh and unique about this South African series has to be its incredible production.

I’ve seen a lot of series from South Africa and this one is by far one of the best production I’ve witnessed in a long time.

The only other series that may even come close to Justice Served would have to be The Republic which was released in 2019.

What makes this series special is that it not only focuses on the main cast alone but also brings social media into play, so you are enticed to think long and hard about what’s right and what’s wrong.

South Africa without a doubt still one of the most unequal countries in the world, where more than 50 percent of its people live below the minimum wage while its politicians and leaders live a soft life, sleeping with full bellies.

To be honest, the constitution of South Africa has not helped nor assisted black lives in the same way it has improved and helped the minority and why is that?

My opinion is that black people chose to hate one another, trying to be the exception in every situation whilst white people and Afrikaners chose to stick together to survive.

There are also other factors such as cultural and traditional differences which play a major part in why black people find it hard to come together and make a difference.
Justice Served serves as a medium for self-introspective, where you will question your morals and values as a person.

It’s thought-provoking and profound with almost little effort needed due to its incredible script based on the views of freedom fighters and traitors.
This series is truly incredible and should not be slept on, I urge South Africans to watch this series, who knows, you’ll probably learn something new.

Not to mention the unpredictable plot twist at the end of the series which comes out of nowhere and leaves you questioning which direction season 2 will take.

The truly incredible cast brought together, working remarkably well together from start to finish, I’m super excited to see more from creator Tshepo “Ty” Skosana and Meraki Studios in the future.

Let me know in the comments section below what some of your favorite moments of Justice Served were.
