Mbalula delivers crime stats, vows to crack down on 'lazy' police efforts”

Releasing crime statistics for the financial year 2016/17 to the Portfolio Committee on Police on Tuesday, the Minister said, however, contact crimes like murder and robbery remain stubbornly high.

POLICE minister Fikile Mbalula has announced that a majority of the serious community related crimes - which are dependent on police detection - have recorded a decrease over the past decade. "The integrity of crime statistics is very important and the public must trust that no clever accounting has been done", he said.

Although crime, in general, has shown a slight decrease, murders and aggravated robberies are up.

"Today I am saying to criminal gangs; "Nilibambe Lingashoni - I am coming for you hard, enough is enough".

Murder and attempted murder increased by 1.8% and 0.4% respectively.

A staggering total of 1 738 980 cases of crime was reported nationwide for different offences.

However‚ the head of the Institute for Security Studies' justice and crime-prevention programme‚ Gareth Newham‚ said that if one looked at the 400‚000 cases‚ "just under 300‚000 were cases opened against people who were arrested for small amounts of drugs".

Sexual offenses were also down 4.3 percent, with incidents of rape decreasing by 4 percent in particular, said Mbalula. The police minister is determined to make sure that every South African feels safe by 2030 and has promised citizens that they will "have no fear of crime [and] are properly served by the police and courts".

Presenting the statistics, Mbalula sent a warning to gang lords and violent criminals.

With additional and more efficient policing, Mbalula also plans to take on alcoholism - a contributing factor to contact crime. "It shows that the police are simply sweeping South Africa's poor areas‚ instead of taking proper action to address serious and violent crimes".
