South Africa #63
With recent cases of attacks by local South Africans on other Africans and their businesses in what is described as Xenophobia, it comes as no great shock that South Africa is listed as the most dangerous country in Africa security-wise.
Also, earlier this month, a dismal crime report from South Africa was released, which showed that murders, robberies at residential properties, bank robberies and sexual offences increased over the last 12 months.
In the survey by InterNations, a British expat states: “My life is easier here, but I feel as if I am living in a bubble: I miss the freedom to walk or ride anywhere at any time, and I hate having to worry about my security.”
A Belgian expat complains about the “uncertain political situation, racism, corruption and high crime rate, as well as the weakness of the rand.”
