The Provincial Commissioner of the South African Police Service in Mpumalanga, Lieutenant General Mondli Zuma condemned the callous burglary into a school and theft of computer equipment by faceless people.
General Zuma’s condemnation spirals from the incident which took place between the evening of 23 May 2019 and early on 24 May 2019, at the Portia Shabangu Secondary School in Tekwane South, at Kanyamazane, near Nelspruit.
Staff members were surprised by an empty computer room when reporting for duty in the morning.
A total of 22 black laptops, among them, one Lenovo, two Acer, 19 ThinkPad brands as well as a black overhead projector, to the tune of R66 700, were stolen.
Police are investigating a case of burglary business and no arrest has been made as yet. Any person with information that may assist in the investigation of this matter is urged to contact Detective Sergeant Mhlonishwa Sheba at 082 556 5186 or the SAPS Crime Stop number, 08600 10111.
The Provincial Commissioner said that it is sad that people can be so cruel and greedy by perpetuating criminal actions which have a direct bearing on the future of learners. He called on all law-abiding citizens to ensure that these faceless characters are identified, isolated and the full might of the law be unleashed on them.
