Beware of Flat screen theft


By: Palesa Makanyane

A small village in Bugersfort called Ledingwe is left shaken in fear after more than five houses were broken into. This traumatic incident happened last week in the early morning.

The thieves have stolen Plasma TVs and other items. According to Rooi Makgopa whose Plasma TV was stolen, he is thankful to be alive and well with his family because they do not know what would have happened if they saw the thieves.

He said that they did not hear any unusual sound when the incident was taking place.

“We woke up and realized that someone broke into our home, Plasma TV and phones gone. After few hours, we heard that they have also broken into houses not far from us. My question is how did they know we have a plasma TV and where exactly it was,” said Rooi.

Rooi explained that they called the police which came and take fingerprints, but he does not have hope that they will confiscate the items. He suspects that the thieves might be anyone around the village.

Rooi’s mother Linah Makgopa is left traumatized. She said the thieve was barefooted as they found prints. However, she is more concerned about what the thieves used to make them deep asleep.

“We could have at least heard a sound when they were grinding the window frame but nothing. We hear they use things to make victims fall asleep so they can take whatever they want in the house. My biggest fear is the thieves coming back for something else, I hardly slept since the incident,” said Linah.

The Chief of the village Matsobane Mampa said they will ensure that this does not happen again around their village. He is disappointed that people are stealing items of vulnerable from people in his village.

“Our people work hard from their belongings. We held a community meeting with the hope to hear from our people on how to keep safe. They suggested a patrol; however, I think it’s best everyone come up with their strategy to keep their homes safe,” he said.
