Google navigation apps, Waze and Google Maps, will no longer direct users through Cape Town's Nyanga township and nearby areas in South Africa due to increased security concerns. This decision comes after a US tourist was robbed and shot in the face while following the app's route through the township. In September, a British surgeon was fatally shot during a protest in the same area. The UK government has issued a warning to its citizens about relying on GPS navigation in South Africa and advised against taking alternative routes that can lead to less secure areas.
