Giyani- The offices of the Mopani District Municipality in Giyani have been broken into. “Some files were stolen from the office of the director responsible for engineering and water services. When the employees of the municipality reported for duty on Monday (on the 07th of January 2019) found that the office was broken into and immediately alerted the police. “The office is used to keep documents of all construction projects that have been completed and those that are still underway.

“The municipality has also instituted an internal investigation to establish all the circumstances around the burglary. We are also awaiting a report from a private security company that has been tasked to guard the building.

“We are concerned about these incidents that are aimed at defocusing the municipality’s service delivery efforts. We are calling on anyone with the information that can lead to the arrest of the suspects to contact the police.” added Mopani district municipality spokesperson, Witness Tiva.
