Pieter-Louis Myburgh’s house broken into, shock as Jacques Pauw’s house raided

Investigative journalist Pieter-Louis Myburgh says it has been a bizarre day as his house was burgled, trade unionist Patrick Craven’s home was also burgled and author and journalist Jacques Pauw’s home was raided by the Hawks.

The outside gate was broken, the front door and security gate too. A couple of things have gone missing from the house; television and a personal laptop and some electronics have been taken.

At the same time, Pauw, author of The President's Keepers, confirmed that three members of the Hawks raided his home in Riebeek-Kasteel.

He said they were searching for secret documents.

Responding to Craven’s house being broken into, Zwelinzima Vavi, secretary general at South African Federation of Trade Unions, said he believes the break-in was staged.

Our suspicion is that there is state involvement here.

The South African National Editors' Forum’s Sam Mkokeli responded with shock to the news of burglaries.

What’s happened here today is shocking. It has been a big problem, we must not be naïve that just because there is a change in political leadership there is a change. The corruption is deep.
