Gun Free SA director Adele Kirsten says they have looked at the past 20 years and the changing nature of gun violence.

Gun Free SA director Adele Kirsten says they have analysed a report by the South African Medical Research Council and University of Cape Town school of public health on gun deaths.

Kirsten says they looked at the past 20 years and the changing nature of gun violence.

John Maytham speaks to Gun Free SA director Adele Kirsten about the research.

Between 1994 and 2013 we saw just over 36,000 murders in Cape Town and we've seen a dramatic increase in gun-related murders and particularly in the Cape Flats.

Adele Kirsten, Director - Gun Free SA

We are tracking murders from 1994. And you begin to see a drop in murders across the country, across communities and across races up until 2009.

Adele Kirsten, Director - Gun Free SA

And then you see weapons start moving through the corrupt practices... and you begin to see an increase in people living in the Cape Flats.

Adele Kirsten, Director - Gun Free SA
