I work with a woman originally from South Africa and her American husband is my boss. I'd be interested to get their opinions on whether or not things are safe over there or not. She was due to return on Friday from a two-week family vacation, and I'm sure she could give me the lowdown.
It's probably no mistake that most of her siblings and relatives live in the United States.
To have a comparable murder rate we would need a murder rate of 330 a day, an increase of 600%!
Not to mention the land area of the US is nearly ten times that of South Africa.
In short when compared to the US then yes I would say I would be careful when going to South Africa, then again I wouldn't recommend going to some areas of Detroit or Toledo either.
