Mozambique Ranks 7th Out of 10 African Countries With the Highest Crime Index at the Beginning of 2024

Addressing the detrimental effects of a high crime index in African nations requires a multifaceted and collaborative approach. This has become all the more important given the exposure the crime levels in Africa are receiving. This issue permeates various aspects of society, influencing individuals, businesses, and the overall economic landscape.

Several African nations have made commendable efforts to dispel harmful stereotypes and promote stability and safety, via the extermination of crime. However, some regions still report high levels of crime.

One of the most significant detriments of a high crime index is its adverse effect on the economy. Rampant criminal activities deter foreign investments, hinder business growth, and contribute to an overall atmosphere of instability.

Investors are often hesitant to engage in regions with high crime rates, fearing potential financial losses and disruption of operations. As a result, the economic development of affected nations may be stunted, limiting opportunities for job creation and prosperity.

Additionally, high crime rates can erode the social fabric of communities, instilling fear and mistrust among residents. These are but a few of the complications that arise from a nation having a high crime rate.

With that said, below are the African countries with the highest crime index as 2024 begins. The data below is courtesy of the Numbeo, one of the world’s most profound data and research platforms.
