BBC News | TALKING POINT | Have you experienced crime in South Africa?
No. I have never experience violent crime in South Africa. I can't think of anyone involved intimately with it either. I might know a friend who knows a cousin of a girl he used to dates' friends dog's owner who once knew someone involved in it....but nothing that comes to mind right away.
My advice is not one sides. My advice is saying there is crime , but assuring you that if you're middle classed you don't need to worry about it.
Of course there is always a risk of something happening to you. People get murdered in every country of the world everyday. I can never say there is no risk. I can just point out that middle clased south africans experience violent crime at about the same level or less than the united states of america.
