“Inside job. Where they got all the keys from?”
Siboniso Ncube said:
“My foreign brothers and local brothers combined as a gang, you can't touch them.”
Sduduzo Wiseman Nene responded:
“It's only me and you who are worried about this thing otherwise the rest is worried about their shares because the job is done as planned.”
Pearson M Rond reacted:
“Taking something or inheriting items that you never worked for or breaking someone's premises and you still call yourself a dad in front of your children, folks need to change their behaviour.”

“Where is the security guy, you can see his stuff on the chair on the left hand side of the garage. These guys knew their way around.”
