Robbery and theft at least once a month in my area Pretoria East, numbers are very accurate if not lower than reality, do not walk at night and if during the day do not give attention to anyone that approaches you. In fact just move out of South Africa

I stayed in Pretoria for 20 Years for me Pretoria was very safe, I moved out in 2015 some of my relatives are still staying in Pretoria.

This will either be very accurate or very inaccurate, Pretoria east is the exact opposite, however anywhere else, you're incredibly accurate, but cost of living and property prices are high in Pretoria east aswell

Not sure how your data is gathered and compiled, but Pretoria is probably one of the safest cities in South Africa if not Africa. I understand Johannesburg being rather high, but having Pretoria 2nd overall shows how inaccurate your data is.

This is an extremely safe city. Want to live in a place where you don't have to worry about being robbed or murdered? Pretoria is a no-brainer; come live here!
