Mbombela - An Mpumalanga police constable appeared in the Nelspruit Magistrate's Ccourt on Wednesday in connection with the theft of an Apple MacBook.

Provincial police spokesperson Selvy Mohlala confirmed that Constable Promise Mashego, 27, of Mbombela was arrested on Friday after he was accused of stealing the Apple MacBook from the Office of the Premier, David Mabuza.

He was not asked to plead, a Sapa correspondent reported.

The court heard that closed circuit television camera footage from the premier's office showed the accused, dressed in his official police uniform, taking the laptop worth roughly R28 500.

He was granted R1 000 bail and the matter was postponed to 21 January.
