South Africa enjoys the dubious distinction of having the world's highest crime rate, as the nation's government and security control has virtually collapsed since the introduction of majority rule in 1994.
Given a choice between working as a KBR contractor in Iraq and getting paid hundreds of thousands of dollars versus going to South Africa in 2010 for the World Cup, you'd be better off going to Iraq. You're less likely to die, and at least you'll go home with more money than when you left. At least in Iraq, the security forces are marginally less likely to kill you than the insurgents, whereas in South Africa, you are three times more likely to be a victim of crime at the hands of the police than at the hands of a civillian.
