The violence in these neighborhoods is at such a high level that these ten communities have caused two out of every five attempted murders in the first six months of 2019. Here are the names of the ten neighborhoods to avoid in Cape Town.
Bishop Lavis, Mitchells Plain, Delft, Elsies River, Nyanga, Khayelitsha, Mfuleni, Philippi, Kraaifontein, Manenberg.
