There has been a break-in at the State Security Agency (SSA) in Pretoria, where an undisclosed amount of money and sensitive documents have reportedly been stolen.
Sunday Independent reported that two weeks ago, robbers walked into a safe at the office in Lyttelton and left with classified documents, an undisclosed amount of money in local and foreign currency.
The robbery is believed to be an inside job.
This is the second time that the SSA has been robbed. In 2015 the agency was robbed of R17 million.
Clement Manyathela chats to researcher Murray Hunter to reflect on these robberies at the SSA.
It is never great when the name security is in your mandate and you get robbed and this is not the first incident. What is concerning is that we recognise that there is a pattern of criminality that has affected the SSA and that is not a secret.— Murray Hunter, Researcher
