Johannesburg - The official residence of Gauteng Premier Nomvula Mokonyane has been burgled, the provincial government said on Wednesday.

Spokesperson Thabo Masebe said it was suspected that thieves gained access to the premises from an undeveloped stand adjacent to her residence on September 6, and stole several items, including a television set and clothes.

"The police are investigating the case and at this stage no suspects have been identified," he said in a statement.

The infrastructure development department and the relevant security authorities were assessing security at the residence and appropriate upgrades would be done to prevent future security breaches, he said.

The premier's residence in Bryanston was reportedly recently refurbished at a cost over R2m.

The house was not occupied after former premier Mbhazima Shilowa moved out after resigning and joined the Congress of the People (Cope).
