Cape Town’s fourth car bombing in the past month occurred Sept. 9 outside the OBZ nightclub in the southern suburb of Observatory. No one was killed and only two were injured. A Muslim vigilante group is being held responsible for the attack.
Crime continues to plague the country and affect tourists. A honeymooning couple from New York were robbed of everything but the clothes they wore just outside Kruger National Park near Sabie Sands Sept. 9. A band of six armed men took their minibus and everything in it but left them unharmed. And it appears even the country’s president isn’t safe. Thabo Mbeki’s Cape Town residence was broken into by a man who simply made himself at home before being arrested.
