Its one major problem in townships. Crime is affecting everyone. In my opinion I blame it o the media, youth is being controled by the things they see on media. People tend to seek power in such way that hurting other people seems to be a hobby in our everyday life. Shortcuts seems to be the leading way in every work of our daily life of which is wrong. If we stop to entertain what the media is doing to us I believe the rate will fall. As for the hunger for power, money being the influence to every pain of our daily lives. If we stop to measure success on how much your net worth but how many souls you have saved then we will have some light.
