Farm murders in SA - 62 deaths recorded

Minister of Police Bheki Cele

I can say the South African Police Service dropped the ball, his situation must be arrested and reversed with lightning speed.

Politicians across party lines have expressed dissatisfaction with the almost seven percent increase in murders in South Africa.

Questions are being raised about the accuracy of the latest annual crime statistics released by the South African Police Service (SAPS)‚ with the South African Banking Risk Information Centre (Sabric) revealing that its database contains nearly 150 more heists than what the police have reported.

Table Talk with newly elected Minister of Police Bheki Cele in is office in Parlaiment, Cape Town.

Cele said the murder figure was akin to that of a "war zone", and admitted the crime statistics were dismal.

Major General Sekhukhune says a two-year comparison of contact crimes shows that murder went up by 6.9% - from 19016 in 2016/17 to 20336 in 2017/18.

A total of 20,336 people were killed in the 12 months to March this year, up from 19,016 the previous year.

Speaking in parliament, Bheki Cele said despite a reduction in other crimes, it was disturbing that murders were still high. In 2017/2018‚ 20‚336 murders were recorded‚ an average of 57 people killed every day.

The rise in murder rate was partly down to gang violence and lethal turf wars over the control of lucrative taxi mini-bus routes that transport many poorer South Africans to work.

The province with the least amount of murders was the Northern Cape at 340, a decrease from last year's 344.
