Every day, 71 people are killed in South Africa, and these are the worst places.

The South African Police Service (SAPS) has released the latest crime statistics for the first quarter of 2022/23, which covers the months of April through June 2022.

Even though the number of reported community crimes went up by 1.1% during the quarter compared to the same time period the year before, some types of crime showed alarming increases.

This included murder, and police data show that crime went up by 11.5% from one year to the next.

Bheki Cele, who is in charge of police, said that the rise in murders is “worrisome.”

Cele said that as many as 6,424 people were killed by other people in South Africa in the first quarter of the fiscal year 2022/2023. This is more than the 664 people who were killed in the same period last year, when the country was under Covid-19 lockdown levels one and two.

On average, 71 people were killed in South Africa every day from April to June, which is 91 days.

The South African Police Service (SAPS) said that this means there were 11 murders for every 100,000 people in South Africa during the three-month period. This rate has steadily gone up over the years, from 8 per 100,000 in 2018 to 11 per 100,000 in 2019.

At 18, the Eastern Cape has the most murders per 100,000 people. KwaZulu Natal is next at 14 and the Western Cape is not far behind at 13.8.

On average, 71 people were killed in South Africa every day from April to June, which is 91 days.

The SAPS says that arguments and misunderstandings are still the top three reasons why people kill each other. Murders out of retaliation or revenge were also common, and vigilantism was the third most likely reason for killing.

Guns are used to kill people the most often, followed by knives and other sharp objects.

During this time, the most murders were reported at the uMlazi, Plessislaer, and uMthatha police stations in KwaZulu-Natal and the uMthatha station in the Eastern Cape. In total, 221 murders were reported in these three areas.

Cele said, “Recently, the police ministry and SAPS management met with Umlazi police structures, traditional and religious leaders, business people, and young people to talk about how to improve police work in the area.”

“During this meeting, the improvement of police response time and the lack of vehicles, as well as how the design of the environment made it harder for police to do their jobs, were brought up sharply and are now being dealt with quickly at the national, provincial, and local government levels.”

The SAPS also looked into 284 murder cases where two or more people were killed at the same time.

The most murders with more than one victim happened in KwaZulu-Natal, followed by Gauteng and the Eastern Cape. Cele said that the majority of these killings were done with a gun.
