S.A Government makes huge profits from crime

Question: "What is the influence of crime on the S.A. Govt?"
Answer: Crime generates millions and millions of Rands for the SA
Here are the facts...
Example 1:
Take just one million home owners in Gauteng who pay for "armed crime

African farmers?
The S.A. Govt likes to compare us to overseas. Well overseas your safety
and security is covered by your income tax and is tax deductible!

public aware of the Govt's "income" from crime. In the meantime crime is
the goose that lays the golden egg.
Is it also not unreasonable to expect victims of violence and hijackings
to pay their own medical costs?
The Govt. should pay for these expenses as well as family counseling for
