Parliament has been burgled again. This latest crime comes just a few months after the SABC reported a robbery having taken place in its offices there. That embarrassing episode poured scorn on the elevated security features which were recently installed in the House.
This time, not only was a computer stolen, but ammunition has also disappeared – raising questions about how it was brought to Parliament, which is a designated gun-free zone with strict security, including gun lockers at its entrances.
City Press has learnt from four separate sources that ammunition was taken during the break-in. The criminal(s) targeted an office in the National Council of Provinces (NCOP) building.
