The South African Police Services have released images of two suspects who are linked with the recent burglary at the offices of the Commission into State Capture.
Media reports surfaced earlier this week that police in Gauteng are probing a business robbery following a burglary at the offices of the Judicial Commission of Inquiry into Allegations of State Capture on Saturday.
It was reported that the Gauteng police spokesperson Colonel Noxolo Kweza confirmed that they had launched an investigation but could not divulge more details, saying they would be released at a later stage.
Moreover, Kweza was said to be responding to news that unknown culprits broke into the offices of the Zondo Commission on Saturday night where they removed various items, including laptops containing vital information.
However, it looks like the police are quickly set to have a breakthrough in as far as the case is concerned following two images posted on Twitter belonging to the men in blue. Reads the statement:
“RT #sapsGP Police are offering a cash reward for info on the suspects behind the business robbery at the offices of the State Capture Commission of Inquiry.
"Anyone who is able to identify the suspects. Lt/Col Mathothe on 079 694 6404. #CrimeStop ML.”
Briefly News reported that the offices of the State Capture Inquiry had been broken into on Saturday night and a number of laptops were stolen.
According to reports from eNCA, sensitive documents may also have been removed. This was a developing story and an official update from the police and the Zondo Commission was expected.
Conspiracy theorists have taken to the internet to share their thoughts on what might be the motive and the target of the burglary.
