Lucky Dube: Prophetic Lyrics from 'Crime and Corruption'

NVDL: 'Do you ever worry about your house being broken into
Do you ever worry about your car being taken away from you...
Do you ever worry about leaving home
and coming back in a coffin...'

From BBC News:
The latest crime statistics are truly horrifying. Last year a staggering 19,000 South Africans were murdered.
By comparison, Britain, which has a larger population, had about 700 murders in the same period.
And taking the most serious crimes as a whole, the situation is even grimmer.
Just over half a million South Africans are murdered, raped or assaulted every year.
