@GreenandBlack if they're relatively far from police presence, then it may be easier for prominent activists to be assassinated or killed.
Political assassinations of activists do happen in South Africa, but I'm not sure how correlated they are with rurality -- just a thought that it could happen that way. I think that some people involved in stopping mineral extraction in KZN or EC get death threats and maybe a few people got killed? I'll have to check up on that one though
