Premier’s home burgled

2010-09-22 15:15

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

Spokesperson Thabo Masebe said today 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,” Masebe said.

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 Braynston was reportedly recently refurbished at a cost of more than R2 million.

The house had not been occupied after former premier Mbhazima Shilowa moved out after he resigned and joined Cope.
