Jackie Selebi's home burgled

Former police National Commissioner Jackie Selebi’s house in Waterkloof, Pretoria, has been burgled, Gauteng police said on Sunday.

Lieutenant-Colonel Tshisikhawe Ndou said robbers gain entry into the house after lifting the gate off its rail.

“It is not a robbery, it is house-breaking and theft,” he said.

He said the robbers made off with electrical appliances including a plasma TV, laptop and foreign coins.

Selebi was not home when the robbers struck. His wife found a VW Golf parked outside the house when she returned home on Saturday at about 6.30pm.

“No shot was fired, no pointing of firearm,” said Ndou.

He said the incident was not linked to the burglary at the Bryanston home of Gauteng police commissioner Mzwandile Petros.

“This are two separate incidents, they are not linked at all. The one occurred in Johannesburg and the other in Pretoria,” he said.

Petros’ home was burgled on Friday night. A formal investigation into the burglary is under way. - Sapa
