1. Mabaso, Nonhlanhla Patricia Zanele. The impact of the corporatization of housing rental stock on the living conditions of tenants in eThekwini Municipality : a case study of Flamingo Court, Umbilo, Durban.

Degree: 2017, University of KwaZulu-Natal

South Africa is a developing country which has a segregated and apartheid past. In 1994, the new democratic government was established. The democratic governments’ constitution states that all South Africans should have a basic right of access to adequate housing. The government has a challenge to deliver housing especially to the disadvantaged groups  – Indians, Coloureds and Blacks. The housing in the urban areas has been for the elite group (whites) who were privileged with the majority being marginalised. The government sought to rectify this by implementing policies which would allow the under-privileged to have houses in the urban areas and also security of tenure. The eThekwini municipality has implemented various forms of housing delivery and this study focuses on the Discount Benefit Scheme which was replaced by the Enhanced Extended Discount Benefit Scheme. The scheme was anticipated to permit families that had been given state-funded and managed housing stock before 1994, the chance to take entitlement of the units in which they had lived (www.urbanlandmark.org.za/SERI). The researcher is interested in viewing this project as part of government trying to help the poor people by giving them full ownership of housing. This is part of a neoliberal policy agenda. Part of this agenda includes the corporatization of housing. This is a process of transforming state assets, government agencies, or municipal organizations into corporations. It is also linked with privatization which is referred to as the act of transferring ownership of a specified property or business operation from a government organization to a privately owned entity, as well as the transition of ownership from a publicly traded, or owned, company to a privately owned company. The study will attempt to examine the effects of corporatization on the living conditions of former tenants, and now owners of apartments in the previously council owned block of flats. The findings of the study indicate that corporatization of housing is not for the poor people and suggests that government needs to review DBS projects.

2. Shabane, Sanele Errol. The policing of rural and urban crimes: a case study of the Msinsini and Umbilo policing precincts in KwaZulu-Natal.

Degree: 2018, University of KwaZulu-Natal

The SAPS crime statistics for 2016 financial year indicates an increase and a decrease in various crime causations as compared to the past year (2015). According to this data, crime in South Africa decreased between 2015 and 2016, with 2.1 million crimes reported in 12 months measured. Notably, all general categories of crime decreased, except for contact crimes which remained “stubborn’. The SAPS 2016 statistics were compiled in conjunction with Statistics South Africa results to ensure that the process was subject to the tightest quality control. This came after criticism in 2015 that the police statistics were unaudited, bringing it into question its reliability and validity. The biggest crime category to increase over the past year (2015) was robbery of Cash-In-Transit (CIT) vehicles, though this is off a relatively low base. Between April 2014 and March 2015 financial years, there were 119 reported cases of these robberies – in the April 2015 to March 2016 period, this jumped 15.1% to 137 cases. For the purpose of this study, a sheer number of crimes were reported and the biggest increase was in cases of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, which saw 7,598 more cases reported in 2016. General theft and drug-related crimes remain the biggest problems in the country, with over 340,000 and just under 260,000 reported crimes in those categories respectively, though this is an improvement from 2015. Break-ins at residential properties is the third biggest crime in the country, with over a quarter of a million cases. In response to these crimes, the local SAPS (Msinsini and Umbilo Police Stations) in executing their duties on preventing and combating of crimes have faced various challenges as to serve the citizens of South Africa in protecting them from crime. This was discussed through the analysis of the types of crimes occurring in the selected rural area as compared to the urban city of Durban, KZN; the policing challenges of crimes occurring in these areas and; the crime prevention strategies of policing crimes in the areas of study. The prevailing recommendations for effective policing strategies in contemporary South Africa are also discussed. This study has adopted a qualitative research approach, which allows the researcher to uncover salient issues that can later be studied using more structured methods. This study has used exploratory research design to respond to the study objectives and research questions and to provide an in-depth understanding of SAPS members’ perceptions on this subject. The findings of this study provide that the police officials in the rural (Msinsini policing precinct) and urban (Umbilo policing precinct) are both experiencing various challenges such as lack of adequate resources, shortage of police members, lack of adequate vehicles and vehicles that suit the demographic settings of the policing area in order to prevent the crime activities in their policing precincts. The prevailing recommendations of this study based on participants’ responses relate to the hiring… Advisors/Committee Members: Maluleke, Witness. (advisor), Sibanyoni, Ephraim Kevin. (advisor).

3. Snyman, Zipho Nomsasa. Community policing forum : exploring general community and CPF members’ perspective on the value of and the effectiveness of CPF in Glenmore and Umbilo communities.

Degree: 2017, University of KwaZulu-Natal

A community policing forum (CPF) is one of the structures used for crime prevention within the community. This structure is used nationally; its objectives are likely to be similar in some of the countries. This study sought to explore the perspective of community members and CPF members on the value and effectiveness of Community Police Forums in the area of Glenmore and Umbilo. The researcher intended to explore various which can make CPF effective within the study area with the hope of minimising crime rate and related incidents. To obtain that, the researcher had five objectives which were; To explore the perspective of community members and CPF members on the value and effectiveness of CPF within the communities; to determine the roles of CPF within the community; to determine whether the community members of the stated areas are aware about the existence of CPF; to determine the need of CPF within the community and to explore the challenges faced by the CPF members. Triangulation of theories which included Broken Windows Theory and Social Disorganisation Theory has been used as the theoretical framework. This study applied a qualitative design located with an interpretivist paradigm. In-depth interviews with ordinary community members and CPF members were conducted (triangulation of sources). The data was analysed using thematic analysis. The findings of this study showed that the CPF in the stated areas is effective, even though the structure is isolated from community members. The members of the community see the value of having community policing forums within the communities. Most community members claimed not to know about the strategies used to broadcast the existence of the forum within their community. CPF members also outlined the challenges which they are facing, to mention a few they, pointed out that in Umbilo community members are renting properties, and they keep on changing their residential and that lead them into not taking much responsibility in crime prevention methods which the community implements.
