#MiddayReport Round-up: Lunchtime Three + 1

The rundown: With murders, attempted murders and robberies up, what do the latest crime stats mean? EWN's Barry Bateman reports that '2 out of 10 murders are committed by people who don’t know each other' while the Institute for Security Studies' Gareth Newham says: 'We get figures too infrequently to use them as a crime reduction tool'.

Staying on the continent: EWN Nigeria's Samson Omale says of the Synagogue Church of all Nations collapse in Lagos: 'The rescue process has ended, a DNA investigation is underway now', while the Gift of the Givers' Dr Imtiaz Sooliman says their team initially encountered resistance in accessing patients at Lagosian hospitals.

Further afield: EWN UK's Peter Anderson says of Scottish citizens choosing to stay in the UK: 'Concerns over income, tax and oil ate away at people in the last few days'.

Your bonus for this afternoon - back home: COSATU General Secretary Zwelinzima Vavi and Banking Association of South Africa MD Cas Coovadia only have praise for resigned Reserve Bank Governor Gill Marcus, with Coovadia saying: 'She's been instrumental in developing good leadership'.
