Keywords:traditional leaders, crime, crime prevention, South Africa
Although legislation exists to govern the incorporation of traditional leaders into the post-1994 democracy, intense debates on the issue continue.

The key question should not be whether traditional leaders should perform such functions, but how they can participate in the delivery of local safety.
