‘Helen Suzman Foundation robbers knew what they wanted’
The guard who witnessed the crime says a woman directed the operation and knew what she wanted.
CAPE TOWN - The Helen Suzman Foundation says the security guard who was manhandled during the armed robbery of its offices last night, says the perpetrators knew exactly what they wanted.
The guard was hand-cuffed to a rail before the foundation's computers were stolen.
The Helen Suzman Foundation has launched an application to declare the appointment of Hawks head Berning Ntlemeza illegal.
Its director Francis Antonie says, "According to the security guard, a woman was directing the operation and she seemed to know exactly what she wanted. Alternatively, there may be a more sinister explanation that somebody wants to our access our information systems or our networks."
Meanwhile, the foundation says yesterday's armed robbery will not stop it from doing its work or derail its application to have Ntlemeza's appointment as head of the Hawks struck down.
It's understood the woman was ticking off items in a note book, and spoke to someone on the phone while the robbery was underway.
The foundation officially lodged its application against the Hawks head last week.
