Fifty-seven people are murdered in South Africa every day, a statistic that requires more stringent action by the police.

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.

Many murders were linked to gang violence in Western Cape province, whose capital is Cape Town.

"Look at the crime statistics on 2010-11 and look at murder, because you can't cheat with murder statistics".

Cele Presenting a report on the killings said 20,336 murders were recorded in the country from 2017 to 2018 period.

The figures show that murder is up from 19,016 murders in 2016/17 to 20,336 this financial year.

"I don't want to say who dropped the ball but..."

Murder is up. Rape is up.

He said the highest reported incidents of cash-in-transit heists are in Gauteng with 80 and KwaZulu-Natal with 30.

He noticed that the police were starting to work more strategically by collecting more victim and perpetrator profiles.

Carjackings, house robberies and business robberies, which had all increased during the last financial year had only slightly decreased by 2.3 per cent, 0.4 per cent and 3.1 per cent respectively in SA.
