According to De Lange of these‚ 190 were domestic violence incidents‚ 105 were because of mob justice‚ 82 due to taxi violence and 25 were related to illegal mining.
She said one of the challenges in dealing with domestic violence is that the police are reactive to incidents that happen inside homes.
Regarding mob justice she said: “I hasten to indicate that [deaths] attributable to mob justice continue to push the figures up as it becomes difficult to confirm whether or not the purported suspects are indeed the suspect‚ as alleged by the communities who decided to take the law into their own hands.”
The three police stations which performed the worst in terms of murder were Ivory Park‚ Roodepoort and Olievenhoutbosch. The performance of police stations was graded according to increases in the number of murders in their precinct and not by percentages.
