Anger over Nqakula’s dismissal of crime complaints

South Africans of all colours have reacted with outrage to Safety and Security Minister Charles Nqakula’s statement that people should stop moaning about crime or leave the country. The Democratic Alliance says by Nqakula’s own statistics, every day 51 South Africans are murdered, 151 rapes are reported by women and children and 347 armed robberies take place. DA spokesperson Roy Jankielsohn says Nqakula is out of touch with the feelings of ordinary South Africans, perhaps because he rarely visits victims of crime and is protected by VIP security. He says instead of berating citizens, Nqakula should be taking action to allay their fears.
