Many countries are dangerous, kidnappers, carjackers, thieves and other criminals are wandering here and there to find their next victim. The performance of law enforcement agencies in these countries is very low and even some members of security forces are partners in crime and ask for their share of the loot. Crime rate is calculated by dividing the number of reported crimes by the total population, and then the result is multiplied by 100,000. There is no exact reason why crimes are committed but there are several factors attributed to high crime rates, such as high poverty levels and low job availability. Strict police enforcement and severe sentences tend to reduce crime rates. Here are ten African countries with high criminal activities.
1. South Africa
Did you know that South Sudan is the most dangerous country in Africa and one of the most dangerous in the world, just falling above Afghanistan and Syria on the Global Safety Index.
