M&G Hangout: Crime and punishment

Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa is set to release the annual national crime statistics on Thursday. The Mail & Guardian brings you a comprehensive breakdown of the crime statistics and analyses of the numbers.

Which types of crime are on the rise and which have been somewhat curbed? How reliable are the statistics and what can they tell us about the state of policing in the country?

We talk to M&G associate editor Phillip De Wet, reporter Sarah Evans and head of governance, crime and justice at the Institute for Security Studies Gareth Newham, in our M&G Hangout today at 10am. Our guests will unpack the statistics for us and take your questions.

To be part of the hangout, post questions in the comment section below or on FacebookGoogle+ or Twitter using the tag #MGhangout.

You can also watch the video on our Google+ page.
