Investigations continued on Monday into a robbery at the house of suspended ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema's lawyer, Muzi Sikhakhane, Gauteng police said.

"There have been no arrests yet and investigations are continuing," said Lt-Col Tshisikhwawe Ndou.

Sikhakhane's house in Northcliff, Johannesburg, was robbed on Sunday morning, the SABC reported.

He told the public broadcaster he suspected foul play.

"What they did is to open my drawers for documents - all my drawers in both my bedroom and my study. It's clear to me it's people who have not come to steal. They have come either to see me or do something to me. It's too early for me to know exactly in what direction that foul play is," he said.

Two cars and two television sets were stolen. The cars were later found abandoned in Mamelodi, east Pretoria.

On Monday, the Star reported that Sikhakhane also acted for crime intelligence head Richard Mdluli and Human Settlements Minister Tokyo Sexwale.
