It's extremely sad that such a beautiful country with many wonderful, kind, friendly and hospitable people can, at the same time, be extremely violent. The "haves" violently protect their property against the "have nots" who violently attempt to gain control of the property - be it house, car, mobile, whatever. Although mass shootings are very rare, one-on-one violence is all too common, and a part of life. When we lived in Durban, getting the car out, for example, was a major hassle. Unlock the garage, unlock the car, get in, lock doors, disarm the anti hijack device. Back out, remotely shut the garage, drive down to the gate, remotely open the gate, back some more, close the gate, drive further to the gate a the road edge. Check for any suspicious characters, open second gate, drive out and without stopping, remotely close the gate. Seems extreme, but my mother, aged 86, stopped at her gates and was jumped by two guys who smashed the window, opened the door and dragged her out, drove off leaving her lying in the road. There are numerous similar tales.
