South Africa still remains ‘rape capital of world’

South Africa’s National Freedom Party (NFI) has said the sexual offence statistics in the country were still very high despite a small decline observed.



Johannesburg: South Africa’s National Freedom Party (NFI) has said the sexual offence statistics in the country were still very high despite a small decline observed.

“We note that while sex-related crimes... decreased by just more than one percent, these crimes still remain very high as compared to global figures and South Africa remains the rape capital of the world,” News24 quoted NFI president Zanele KaMagwaza-Msibi, as saying.

KaMagwaza-Msibi welcomed an overall decrease in crime reflected in the latest statistics released by Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa on Thursday, and she added sexual crimes were not always reported.

“We call on the government to provide safe shelters for the elderly and orphans, especially in rural areas, as these sections of our population are the most vulnerable to sexual crimes,” KaMagwaza-Msibi said.
