African National Congress deputy president Jacob Zuma will deliver a keynote address at a crime summit in Mitchell's Plain next week, according to the organisers.

Zuma is scheduled to speak at the Anti-Murder Campaign's crime summit on November 23 at the Imperial Primary School in the township, located around 20 kilometres outside Cape Town.

Issues to be addressed include the use of drugs and substances by the youth on the Cape Flats the abduction, rape and murder of children, an increase in domestic violence, and alleged corruption and abuse by police.

This week Zuma allegedly told the 1926 Club in Johannesburg that should he become the next South African president, he would be tougher on crime.

He said the country needed better implementation of crime policies adding that in a country without the death penalty, the law should be applied more strictly. He also spoke about better pay for police officers to tackle crime and, harsher punishment for police to discourage corruption.
