We have given South Africa an overall security risk rating of 75 for Q414. We believe that the country has a very low risk of becoming involved in a major international conflict. Secondly, the country is considered very unlikely to experience a major terrorist attack. However, the same cannot be said regarding crime with the country maintaining a significantly high crime rate.
