WATCH: String of break-ins at gov buildings raises questions, says Bongani

The recent string of security breaches at state institutions has sparked many questions, says new Afternoon Drive host Bongani Bingwa.

Bongani kicked off the first show in his slot looking at recent burglaries and blazes at government buildings.

The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) confirmed the office of Gauteng’s Director of Public Prosecutions was burgled overnight.

This burglary comes less than a week after intruders gained entry to the Hawks headquarters in Silverton and following two recent fires at the offices of the premiers of Gauteng and Eastern Cape.

It started at the Chief Justices offices, we then saw that the NPA itself was burgled and we're now seeing the Gauteng’s DPPs office has been burgled.. This in the the same environment in which two Premiers offices were set alight on the same day.

Bongani says that the brazen security breaches at state institutions show a complete disregard for the law and raise suspicions about potentially sinister motives.

He says it could be criminal syndicates, or powerful people/political figures under investigation and looking for compromising information.

In all these cases, they've gone after computers.. It suggests that this is a well coordinated effort. There's planning behind this.
