Safety & Security, Social & Community
Shacks and flats along the avenues that make up Alexandra township are laden with high levels of violence.
In 2017/18, 90 people were murdered, up from the year before; the past year also saw an increase in other serious and violent crimes, including attempted murder, aggravated robbery, rape and sexual assault.
“It’s not nice walking around feeling unsafe or like something bad can happen to you at any minute. It’s exhausting and it’s time to bring change to Alex” Maryann Nobele – Youth Organiser
