Mmm I think you are right. The delivery trucks and couriers need to be accompanied here in Gauteng by another vehicle with armed operatives. If family member’s or friends leave late from gathering they travel together for as long as possible. We notify our family that we are safe back home, safe inside the house.
Going to places in Southern Africa like Mozambique, most people travel in groups and stay together for safety reasons. Mozambique still get their visitors for the prawns and the most beautiful warm blue water. Traveling in Namibia, people tend to travel together when the meet next to the road. Even with strangers, because it is just sand and dunes and a very very long hot road in the middle of nowhere.
