We are living in a country where people are no longer safe walking in certain areas, even in the afternoon, due to the high crime rate reported by people in those areas. It is very sad since the police know that there are certain areas where crimes are reported on a daily basis, but still they are not doing anything to help and save people.
Many South Africans have warned others and shared on social media that certain areas in Gauteng have been targeted by criminals.The previous week, people were warning drivers of the R80 between Pretoria CBD and Mabopane and Soshanguwe after a number of attempted hijackings had been reported on the same road. However, after several call-outs, people still complain that the police and traffic are not doing anything on the road since the crime is not stopping.
Another spot in Pretoria has been circulating on social media throughout the years as a result of criminal activities occurring at the place. The Volvo truck in South Africa has shared on their Twitter account that another victim was smashed and grabbed at Fountain Circle in Pretoria. According to the tweet, the victim was shot in the hand and his cellphone was unfortunately taken by the criminals.
The tweet also revealed that many people have been complaining about the same spot for years, but the authorities do little. It seems like the police are ignoring people or they are scared to go deal with the criminals in the area, since many people have called the place one of the most dangerous spots in Pretoria.
It is very sad and scary to learn that the authorities are not doing anything after many people have been calling out for them to come and assist. If you are in Pretoria or it happens that you visit the place, be careful of the fountains that circle the area since a high number of smash-and-grab cases have been reported in the place.
