TO GO WITH AFP STORY by Mariette Leroux 'Everyday tragedy in South Africa's murder capital' A plastic toy gun lies, 12 July 2007, in the backyard of a house in the Nyanga township, on the outskirts of Cape Town. Nyanga, South Africa's murder capital has police figures showing a total of 303 murders committed in the year ending in March. Nyanga is a typical township with mostly squatter residences, a dearth of public amenities like sewerage and electricity, and few formal roads which can often make it hard for police to locate the scene of a crime even when alerted.
