The attack on a female auditor from the auditor general's office in Emfuleni Municipality has raised eyebrows with political parties calling for a thorough investigation into the matter.
According to reports, the robbers broke into the auditor’s room in a guest house and shot her twice in the legs making away with a laptop that contained sensitive information regarding investigations.
The auditor and her colleagues were placed at a guest house while conducting investigations on allegations of corruption in the municipality, but her colleague was left unharmed.
Gauteng police spokesperson Colonel Lungile Dlamini says a case of house robbery is being investigated.
He confirmed that indeed the incident took place at a guest house in Vanderbijlpark and that the motive of the attack remains unknown.
He says no arrests have been made.
