Mbombela - A member of Parliament's labour portfolio committee and her two sisters, one of them a policewoman, were robbed in a house in Mbombela on Friday morning, Mpumalanga police said.

Three men with guns kicked open the door and ordered the women to lie down, said Lieutenant Colonel Leonard Hlathi.

The men stole several items, including four cellphones, two laptops, a DVD player, a plasma television and cash.

The owner of the house, believed to be another sister, was not at home at the time.

No arrests had been made by Friday morning.

Hlathi said he could not disclose the name of the parliamentarian.

      Not a chance. They will just get a whole platoon of bodygaurds at the taxpayers expense.

  • Desmond - 2012-02-24 13:47

    Tt is politically motivated. They were not assaulted and raped as is the norm for the area.

  • Christian J Denyschen - 2012-02-24 14:03

    Hahaha have some! How is this news this happens every second even worse to us normal ppl.

  • vlarismam - 2012-02-24 14:17

    They were not hurt or killed - just made to lie down? Sounds like an insurance scam...

      Warwick - 2012-02-24 15:47

      Very possible. Read about the old white woman tortured and beaten to death with an iron. That was a racist attack. Strange that these woman came off so lightly.

  • Alex - 2012-02-24 16:37
