According to the authors of the Women’s Danger Index, Asher and Lyric Fergusson, South Africa is the worst country to visit of the top 50 international tourist destinations.

Mzansi gets its bad ranking from scoring that was given according to factors that were observed in measuring the safety of each of the world’s top tourist destinations, reports The South African.

However, the list has South Africans divided. While many are not surprised (and feel ashamed), there are peeps who think the list is absolutely wrong.

Scandalous,we should be ashamed at how barbaric our society has become

I don't think we realise how NOT NORMAL is it to not be able to walk anywhere at night. We're just conditioned to think that's how it is, but it's not supposed to be! You only realise this when you live or travel somewhere else.

These stats were done by an illegal immigrant in South Africa. I know countries on this list that should be No 1.

@Tulani30

What a bunch of lies

@TheEagl23595997
