Pretoria was burgled over the weekend, The Star newspaper reported today.

Mbalula was in Cape Town at the time.

Appliances, including an LCD TV, were apparently stolen from the

Waterkloof home.

week. His family had not moved in yet.

“We have left the matter in the hands of the Brooklyn police,”
