Probe into Malema lawyer's house robbery

2012-04-23 08:38

Johannesburg - Investigations continued on Monday into a robbery at the house of suspended ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema's lawyer, Muzi Sikhakhane, Gauteng police said.

"There have been no arrests yet and investigations are continuing," said Lieutenant Colonel Tshisikhwawe Ndou.

Sikhakhane's house in Northcliff, Johannesburg, was robbed on Sunday morning, the SABC reported.
He told the public broadcaster he suspected foul play.

"What they did [was] open my drawers for documents - all my drawers in both my bedroom and my study. It's clear to me its people who have not come to steal.

"They have come either to see me or do something to me. It's too early for me to know exactly in what direction that foul play is," he said.

Two cars and two television sets were stolen. The cars were later found abandoned in Mamelodi, east Pretoria.

On Monday, the Star reported that Sikhakhane also acted for crime intelligence head Richard Mdluli and Human Settlements Minister Tokyo Sexwale.

    If he is keeping clients' information in his study or bedroom drawers, and not securely locked away, it should be a huge concern for all of his existing clients!

      Squeegee - 2012-04-23 09:41

      They did not come to steal, but took his 2 cars and TVs... What does he call that?

      Hermann - 2012-04-23 09:56

      Having once tasted such visit I can say all drawers were open, even yanked out, in a search for valuables and fire arms. So the open drawers are no big deal.

      Mtizozo - 2012-04-23 09:59

      Taking the cars and two tellevision sets is not faul but is stealing,,

      Jessica - 2012-04-23 10:00

      Can you steal something which was stolen in the First place? Maybe they were tampering with bribes..... Ha ha ha

      Sharon - 2012-04-23 10:47

      @ Fhatun1 - Did you see how flimsy the locks on drawers are? They could just as well have been unlocked even if the were locked!

  • Rose - 2012-04-23 08:43

    FOUL PLAY, WHOM MIGHT BE IMPLICATE? ANC

      A mysterious 'Third Force'

      Marion - 2012-04-23 10:04

      Chicken Little. Be careful Muzi, the sky is falling.

      Atholl - 2012-04-23 10:06

      The situation demands a 'Nicholsonic Intervention' :-) ... unless it is thee? ... thou hands ? ... thou mind ?

  • Anthony - 2012-04-23 08:48

    hmmmm??? I see anc needs information again...

  • Amanda - 2012-04-23 08:49

    Look at who he is representing?

      fhatun1 - 2012-04-23 09:17

      Malema so what?

  • Herman - 2012-04-23 08:49

    BS, it is just another house breaking.

      Gaby - 2012-04-23 09:30

      This is the economic liberation Malema has been asking for. In plain English it's called theft.

      David - 2012-04-23 09:38

      Agree. Stole cars and Tv sets - seems normal to me. Going through drawers to look for weaons and jewellery - welcome to the real world.

      Herman - 2012-04-23 09:44

      @ Gaby, spot on.

  • Stille - 2012-04-23 08:51

    Another moron seeking the limelight. This is africa you imbicile. This is the african way of doing things. For a supposed educated person, you are really stupid.

  • anthro45 - 2012-04-23 08:51

    "It's clear to me its people who have not come to steal." "Two cars and two television sets were stolen." Make up your bloody mind.

      Michael - 2012-04-23 09:13

      Anthro* ...but they were later abondoned. Pls read further.

      Stille - 2012-04-23 10:07

      michael - you stupid much? The items were removed from his preoperty without his consent. THEFT. So all burglars according to your "logic" must be freed if the belongings are later on found.

      Marion - 2012-04-23 10:09

      @Michael - many cars are stolen then abandoned within a small distance. Why should this be any different?

  • Piet - 2012-04-23 08:52

    The nats way of doing things are rubbing of on the ANC.....

      Nigel - 2012-04-23 09:01

      its the new apartheid regime

  • ssamukange - 2012-04-23 09:01

    someone is wacthing malema he must be carefull

  • Shannon - 2012-04-23 09:01

    "It's clear to me its people who have not come to steal"............ "Two cars and two television sets were stolen". Seriously. If they did not come to steal, how did two TVs and two cars disappear? Mr Sikhakhane, there is no logic in your statements.

      Michael - 2012-04-23 09:14

      Rtfs...

      littlegiantn - 2012-04-23 10:28

      May be it's called procedural logic in law.....

  • sandy.langenstrass - 2012-04-23 09:03

    This is getting extremely intriguing....who know's....in years to come this Malema rise to fame ..then fall..might even make a good movie one day....cause, don't forget there is a lot more that has happened behind the scenes that we are not aware of.

  • guyt1 - 2012-04-23 09:15

    Foul play , what a chop

  • Bryan - 2012-04-23 09:22

    Yawn....Whatever..!!!!

      Rob - 2012-04-23 09:24

      Agreed....Enough of this now !

  • Paul - 2012-04-23 09:24

    Join the rest of South Africans who have had their homes broken into robbed and incase you didnt realize ALL robberies of any nature are classified as foul play... just a suggestion as well,you may want to invest a document safe,its this rather large chunk of solid steel thats moulded in such a way it provides storage space for DOCUMENTS and any other other valaubles u can fit in with ur documents and it comes with a coded lock!!!.Your definitely a lawyer I would never use I can tell you that much mr Muzi Sikhakhane

      Marion - 2012-04-23 10:12

      Really dumb thieves. They should have known they were supposed to break into his offices if they were only after documents.

  • Mabutho - 2012-04-23 09:33

    Yebo

  • Bokfan - 2012-04-23 09:33

    Hmmm a seasoned lawyer criminal ag sorry I mean criminal lawyer.

  • Piet - 2012-04-23 09:34

    He will come with this story to delay Mal-emma's suspension....

      sexypencil - 2012-04-23 09:44

      But sir i think if someone is guilty already is guilty no matter how long will take to authorize the judgements but what he should know is that he is going down no matter whats going on along way or upfront to destruct.

  • Ian - 2012-04-23 09:36

    investigate the lawyer himself, he seems to know a lot of what 'they' did, seems to well prepared

      sexypencil - 2012-04-23 09:42

      But do you think that could be something in relationship to political wars?

  • sexypencil - 2012-04-23 09:39

    IT IF VERY CLEAR THAT ACCORDING TO \ACT\ OF THOSE PEOPLE THAT ENTERED THE HOUSE,SOMETHING RELATING TO MURDER WAS TO TAKE A PLACE IF THE OWNER WAS FOUND.I WONDER WHEN WILL SOUTH AFRICANS QUIT DOING SUCH INJUSTICE WORKS OF MAKING OTHER PEOPLE FEELS TOO CONSTRICTED TO LIVE FREE WHILE WE ALL FREEDOM AND FREE LIFE IN OUR COUNTRY.I THINK IF SUCH PEOPLE LIKE THIS ONCE FOUND DESERVE TO BE IN HELL FOR 5 CENTURIES OR MAYBE MANY LIVES IN HELL AS EXAMPLE TO THOSE WHO WILL STILL PLANNING TO GROW ON SUCH INJUSTICE LIFESTYLE.

  • Shaylene - 2012-04-23 09:43

    Aaah palease Mr Muzi, you not the only \exclusive\ one, anyone who has had their house broken into (including me) knows that they go though all the drawers to look for stuff and the sad part is if you were there they probably would have shot you, that's how the criminals work. It happens to all of us.

      sexypencil - 2012-04-23 09:47

      Thats brilliant and wow and he should stop complaining as as if its the first person to be robbed

  • Jannie - 2012-04-23 09:48

    Check for JM's finger prints. If nothing how about JZ's f prints, but I will question the lawyer himself! Alegitly!

  • Amanda - 2012-04-23 10:01

    LET ME TELL U ALL THIS. MALEMA AND HIS LAYWER DID PLAN THIS . THY ARE SO SLY.

  • Marion - 2012-04-23 10:03

    When we were burgled about 12 years ago they also opened all our drawers looking for whatever. There was no foul play involved. Simply thieves. Why steal his cars and tv sets if they were after documents? Twit.

      Nkhulu - 2012-04-23 10:17

      uhmm for me, i think thy didnt come to steal. thy came for the documents,,,,,so thy wer too clever and took those cars nd Tv sets so tht people would think tht thy came to rob him

      Marion - 2012-04-23 10:20

      @Nkhulu - sarcasm I presume...

  • Andrew - 2012-04-23 10:09

    In my book all types of robbery are "Foul Play" Searching of drawers looking for money or weapons thats what robbers do!

  • Mtizozo - 2012-04-23 10:12

    This is a strategy to delay Malemas processes, that's whay he says its the faults play,,

  • Ronel - 2012-04-23 10:14

    The lesson here is: Back up your PC every day and store Portable device offsite.What if there is a fire? then you really have a big problem

      Marion - 2012-04-23 10:19

      @Ronel - I am very very bad at backing my pc up - have lost most of my stuff on two occasions when pc's packed up. But believe me, if there's a fire I'll be too busy saving my kid, pets and own sorry butt to worry about the pc. :-)))

  • Johan - 2012-04-23 10:15

    They steal two TV sets and two cars and he suspects foul play. lol

  • brionyl.french - 2012-04-23 10:21

    Bwahahahaha maybe Julius got some cronnies to steal all his paper work to cover his bum or another person going to implicated... The Lawyer is daft and should look into securing his documentation on another place, off site is usually the best idea... I blame stupidity here

  • francie.potgieter - 2012-04-23 10:23

    Why doesn't the normal person in the street house breaking also get investigated like this. Ours is just another crime statistic.

  • Marius - 2012-04-23 10:33

    I always thought that any burglary is defined as foul play.

  • Kgolane - 2012-04-23 10:58

    www.news24.co.za ....where the Anti-Malema society meet on Monday mornings. Cant u see that they using ur obsession with Malema to push up advertisng rates...there a lot more going on in this country than Malema.

  • Kay - 2012-04-23 10:58

    i suppose he's actually calling for VIP services just like his client?

  • Bruce - 2012-04-23 11:41

    What robbery is not foul play?

  • Papas - 2012-04-23 12:03

    Every robbery its a foul play\r\nLet's face reality, if it was house robbery do you think the perpetrators could have dumped valuable assets like cars and take only TV sets.\r\nThey want Malemas evidence to nail him\r\nI know many of you r anti Malema bt let's face reality n nt think frm anger n take decision based on favour

      WhiteNut - 2012-04-23 14:56

      Some plasma screens cost more than R45k each! The cars, depending on a model, can be very 'hot' if stolen because some have trackers! So in this case it could have been that the cars were used by the criminals as 'getaway cars', also to load the 2 big screens. When criminals ransack your house they open the drawers not necessarily looking for documents, but looking for valuable items nd jewel; like watches, chains, rings, bracelets, credit cards, id's, passports, guns and all sorts of precious items. So far looks like a common house break-in as there is no evidence to suggest otherwise

  • Loo - 2012-04-23 12:12

    What a load of Bull*** ... The next article will lead " Malema case postponed due to document theft at his lawyers house" CAN it become more predictable ???

  • Jacqui - 2012-04-23 13:20

    They took two cars and two television sets and opened all the drawers they could find. That sounds like the usual break in to me. So why would he think that he was above a common break in?.

      Noluthando - 2012-04-24 13:25

      It would be an ordinary break in had they not gone for the drawers, what information would ordinary criminals be going for in the study? The taking of TV and Cars was probably just distraction and a bonus for them.

  • WhiteNut - 2012-04-23 15:13

    At least they did not take his pc from his study:). Beside its only the heads of arguments that he needs to submit to the NDCA, no new evidence. I'm sure he's got his heads of arguments in his pc

  • philschalkwyk - 2012-05-09 10:28

    The real issue is that they stole Malema's books.he is annoyed because he has not finished colouring them in!
