State Capture Commission Spokesperson Mbuyiselo Stemela says Monday hearings will not be affected by this weekend’s break-in at the commission’s offices in Parktown in Johannesburg.
Two laptops were stolen from different floors of the building and the police and cyber investigators are investigating the burglary.
Parliament’s Presiding Officers, National Assembly Speaker, Thandi Modise and National Council of Provinces Chairperson, Amos Masondo, are expected to appear on Monday.
The Commission’s Secretary, Professor Itumeleng Mosala says he is concerned that the Commission is being targeted as the burglary was not the first incident.
“The only thing we’re concerned about is that this is beginning to be a pattern. I didn’t raise this with you at the beginning. Last week, we had an incident of a bullet fired into the window of our library, which we had to report to the police and again we don’t know what the purpose of this was, we don’t whether it was a stray bullet.
We don’t want to dramatize, we areally don’t want to dramatize because on one hand, we know that our country is crime-ridden and so it’s possible that ordinary crime might find itself into our terrain.”
Professor Mosala speaks to SABC News’ Blain Herman in the video below:
On Friday, the commission wrapped its proceedings with former Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (Prasa) Group Chief Executive Officer (GCEO), Lucky Montana.
Montana is alleged to have played a role in the collapse of corporate governance at the rail agency.
He has, however, refuted the claims – saying facts were manipulated to make the state-owned entity seem dysfunctional during his tenure. Montana is scheduled to return to the commission on Tuesday.
