The United States, Britain and Canada now all have travel advisories for South Africa in place, ......

The United States, Britain and Canada now all have travel advisories for South Africa in place, warning visitors of the high crime rates. The US State Department issued a travel advisory this week, soon after South African police unveiled the latest crime statistics. The advisory warns of violent crimes such as armed robbery, rape, carjacking, mugging and smash-and-grab attacks on vehicles, as well as civil unrest such as protests and strikes. The State Department warns citizens that there is a higher risk of violent crime in the central business districts of major cities after dark, adding that demonstrations, protests and strikes occur frequently and have the potential to turn violent. The statement also points out water restrictions as a result of drought conditions in certain parts of the country. In the event that citizens do travel to South Africa, they are warned to avoid walking alone, to avoid informal settlements, unless with someone familiar to the area and to drive with doors locked and windows closed. The advisory comes just weeks after President Donald Trump ordered his top diplomat to take a closer look at South Africa's land policy and what he called the large scale killing of farmers.
