Harare police are still hot on the heels of thieves who broke into Michael Maphongwana Community Day Centre and stole eight computers on Thursday 29 April.
It is believed the thieves broke into the clinic in the early hours of Thursday morning and gained entry to the office of the facility manager.
Sithembiso Magubane, principal communications officer at Khayelitsha and Eastern substructure, said services are all back to normal at the clinic, and haven’t been significantly affected by the break-in.
“Four computers were stolen from the facility manager’s office and another four from other offices. Two kettles were taken as well as some gloves and masks,” said Magubane.
He said the matter was reported to the police, who are investigating.
Capt Siyabulela Vukubi, Harare police spokeperson, confirmed the incident.
“No arrests have been made yet, and the case of business burglary is underway. Anyone with information on the break-in is requested to contact Harare SAPS at 021 363 9000,” he said.
