Joburg Mayor Herman Mashaba releases crime stats for the month of November.

The Mayor of Johannesburg Herman Mashaba on Tuesday released the crime statistics for the city for the month of November.

More than 800 people were arrested for drinking and driving. There were 129 vehicles hijacked in November alone.

Mashaba says the City is concerned it's being failed by the criminal justice system.

He cited an example of the city's metro police arresting 38 people for drinking and driving, none of whom were prosecuted.

For as long as people don't understand that there are consequences it is going to be very difficult to win the battle against crime.

Herman Mashaba, Joburg Mayor

The areas that are mostly affected by drinking and driving is Sandton and Alexandra in which 159 people were arrested in the month of November, says Mashaba.

In the Joburg CBD, 98 people were also arrested for drinking and driving.

If we look at the stats in the last 3 months region E is much of a challenge and that is Sandton and Alexandra.
