The South African Banking Risk Information Centre (Sabric) recently launched its Carry Cash Safely campaign, which gives advice to consumers on how to avoid being robbed when carrying cash.
As part of its campaign, Sabric provided a “cash robbery risk” breakdown per province.
The Sabric statistics show that over the last five years, the majority of these robberies in South Africa happened in Gauteng.
KwaZulu-Natal had the second-highest number of robberies associated with carrying cash, followed by the Western Cape and the Eastern Cape.
The chart below shows the breakdown of cash robberies per province.
