June 14, 2018 (JUBA) - South Sudan is the least safe country in the Africa, the annual Gallup Global Law and Order poll has shown.

Gabon, Liberia and South Africa were the other least safe countries ranked after South Sudan in the latest polls respectively.

The report also ranked Egypt as the safest country in Africa and at the 16th position out of 135 countries globally.

The annually conducted poll aimed at finding out from people if they felt safe walking at night and if they were ever victims of crime.

While Singapore was considered the safest country in the world, Venezuela was ranked in the poll as least safe country globally.

148,000 adults in 142 countries and areas were interviewed for the survey with questions revolving around confidence in local police, safety at night, cases of theft and whether participants or a family member had been mugged or assaulted within the past 12 months.

According to the poll finding, 50% of residents in South Sudan, Uganda (49%) and Afghanistan (46%), were more likely to say they had been the victims of theft and other crimes in the past year.

Across sub-Saharan Africa, approximately 60% of the people reportedly said they were at least confident in the local police force.

    As long as this president is still leading South Sudan, we will always be number one globally in term of inflation, crimes, theft, illiteracy, rapes, killing of Innocent civilian, tribalism,corruption, etc.
    South Sudanese citizens should pray and unite against this system in the republic of South Sudan.

        Eastern,

        Those who were interviewed in South Sudan by this wicked organization are rebel supporters. All what rebels do is releasing lies and think that world will stand with them to get power, wicked people, nothing will change until you sit down with Kiir. I visited South Africa and I was walking at night without any problem, so this organization is lying. Who care about what rebels think.

    To claim that South Sudan is the least safe country in Africa is a polite way of saying it is the most dangerous country in Africa and the world. For example, the you in my village have virtually vanished because they have died in senseless cattle-rustling battles with neighbouring Dinka clans. The Dinka have been encouraged to fight each other by rival members of the Jieng Council Evil Elders.
