Organized crime in South Africa threatens the economy, its people and the democratic institutions themselves.
Every day we see a number of different and seemingly unconnected criminal incidents taking place - from assassinations to gang rapes in an illegal mining community; and from the violence of the taxi industry to organized cooper theft.
But what lies behind all of these actions is a dark web, a criminal ecosystem driven by an increasingly violent South African underworld.
In this episode Steph Musho talks to Julian Rademeyer, the Director of the East and Southern African Observatory at the Global Initiative Against Transnational Organized Crime about a new and substantial report called 'Assessing South Africa's organized crime risk'.
