Burglar kings brought down

2008-03-15 00:00

As police and private detectives were recovering thousands of rands worth of stolen property from Sabelo Cele’s modest home in kwaDabeka outside Pinetown, they had no idea that Cele, leader of a gang of prolific cat burglars, was lying dead in a morgue while his friend and alleged accomplice Fred Mkhwanazi lay paralysed from a bullet in the spine.

The men are all allegedly part of a new generation of violent housebreakers who specifically target gated communities and secure residential estates, which they rob at night while armed with knives and firearms.
