    Possibly the WORST insurance company around town at present. Drop the all American approach of the KIng and the rest and get down to being an honest “do it right first time” insurace company and you may get somewhere.

    I grew up in a country where I and my family experienced zero burglaries and robbery and house invasions were unheard of in our environment. You only read about such horrors in the newspapers. These Limpopo figures are horrifying. To think that I now live in a country where such criminality is common! Where did we go wrong? When did we lose confidence in our own police force and the criminal justice system? If Limpopo can be proud of such depressing statistics, imagine the situation we now accept as normal elsewhere!
