Why is South Africa losing the war on crime, and how do we address it?

Between June and August 2023, 7 000 people were murdered in South Africa, according to the latest crime statistics.

Clearly, the anti crime strategy of the South African Police Service is ineffective and not yielding the desired results.

Lester Kiewit speaks to Stellenbosch University criminologist, Dr Guy Lamb about why SAPS’ anti-crime strategy is failing and what can be done to correct it.

This interview originally aired on 23 November 2023.
