South Africa’s Eastern Cape province saw a drop of more than 27-percent in serious crime cases in April, May, and June as more than 11-thousand fewer cases of crime involving involved violence were reported in those lockdown months than over the same period a year ago. Newsflash reports that more than 32-percent fewer murders were committed, while sexual offences also fell by almost 40-percent. Acting provincial head crime registrar Kevin Moodley says though that stock theft, which remains a serious concern, continued to increase despite the lockdown.
