We read almost daily about crimes such as cash-in-transit robberies, house break-ins, theft, murder, rape, assault and corruption by government officials.

Crime is an ugly monster which scares off foreign investors away from South Africa. Our country is gradually turning into a den of criminals who are holding our economy hostage.

Tourists are robbed on arrival and some are murdered. This kind of behaviour is unacceptable and deserves to be punished! Tourists fly into our country with money to boost our economy.

How can we terrorise people who help put bread on our table? Cops and communities need to join hands to uproot crime from our society for peace and stability to prevail.
