Malema's former office burgled

2012-07-01 14:37

Johannesburg - The office which former ANCYL leader Julius Malema used to occupy at ANC headquarters was broken into last week, the Sunday Independent reports.

Books and files were taken from his office, and his former personal assistant Moshala Mothiba's computer was stolen, from Luthuli House in central Johannesburg, apparently while the ANC was holding its policy conference in Midrand.

"The incident happened while the people were at (the policy) conference," police spokesperson Inspector Lorraine van Emmerik told the newspaper.

She said police were investigating a case of business robbery.

The Sunday Independent quoted unnamed sources saying that the door had not been forced open, and that the computer contained information on the daily running of the league.

Malema was expelled from the African National Congress earlier this year and barred from entering any of the party's offices.

      Depends who has the computer. Can anyone says 'kiddie p@rn'?

      themba.thwala.98 - 2012-07-01 17:23

      The evidence will still be sitting on the server

      Lacrimose - 2012-07-01 21:58

      Nah, the evidence is safely tucked away in Zim or Cuba. JM may be a doffie on many levels but what he's alluding to now is ahem, blackmail. No way he'd keep his trump cards in LootFreely House under enemy control

    Good tonic for his overblown ego.Give the fat bastard,Malema,a taste of his own medicine and let him feel what its like for the rest of ordinary South Africans that have to put up with this kind of s**t on a daily basis.

  • frans.vanderpoll - 2012-07-01 15:04

    It's Jay-Zee getting rid of evidence! No other explanation.

  • ramohapelwa.berries - 2012-07-01 15:33

    maybe the security guard know the truth or those who didn't attend the conference have the truth of the burglar

  • mike.clery - 2012-07-01 16:07

    "Police were investigating a case of business robbery". Funniest report of the day.

  • vernon.samuel.7 - 2012-07-01 16:09

    Police have today confirmed that the thief only stole 4 books from Malema's office; 1) Computers for dummies, 2) computers for dummies who did not understand computers for dummies; 3) english words for which there are no equivalent words in pedi and 4) how to differentiate the tastes of consecutive president's rear-ends. Malema is understood to have offered a reward of a tender for text books in limpopo to the person who returns these books.

    Damn affirmative shoppers

  • Lacrimose - 2012-07-01 16:55

    Hmm, so whose office is it now? Was it left as a shrine after he departed? Or is this cashing-in on the Malema name to get us to read about yet another robbery? You might as well report that the house I used to live in was burgled.

  • Steven Trollip - 2012-07-01 17:27

    @Mashabag98% of us is also wondering where you got the handheld you sending all these Bonehead idiotic comments from!!IDIOT!!!

  • rob.tubbs.39 - 2012-07-01 18:42

    Me 'thinks' that JUlias may have had a hand in this. Suddenly realised that he had documentation which could incriminate him in any number of 'misdeeds'.....

  • elkita.robbertse - 2012-07-01 20:31

    Malema's photo says that he was the burglar.Look at his guilty face.A malema job?

      Nneny Monene Baatseba - 2012-07-02 03:47
