Three of the country's policing precincts which recorded the most murders this financial
year are in Cape Town.
If the figures are anything to go by, Nyanga, Delft and Khayelitsha can be considered the
most dangerous areas in the country.
Nyanga detectives investigated 289 murder cases between April 2018 and March this
year; 19 fewer murders were recorded compared to the previous financial year.
In Delft, 247 people were murdered. That's 52 more than in 2018.
Khayelitsha recorded 221 murders; in the previous financial year, detectives in the area
investigated 192 murder cases.
The Philippi East police station is ranked fourth of the top 30 stations where the most
murders were reported.
Other Cape Town stations where more than 140 killings were probed include Harare,
Gugulethu, Mitchells Plain, Kraaifontein, Bishop Lavis and Mfuleni.
Most murders of the more than 21,000 killings were committed over weekends.
Cash-in-transit heists were down by just over 23%.
The number of drug crimes had also dropped.
