Our database has recorded twelve assassinations/attempts for March 2017.* Of the twelve cases, one was prevented and eleven resulted in death. Eight of the hits related to the taxi industry, three to organised crime and one was personally motivated.
The hits for March were fairly evenly distributed throughout the country with KwaZulu-Natal, Eastern Cape and Western Cape recording three hits each and Mpumalanga and Gauteng recording one and two hits respectively.
*We acknowledge that our database is a work in progress which is constantly being updated as new information comes to light. Cases are sometimes only recognised at hits during the investigation or trial stage and are therefore only included in the database at such point.
