“They suspects drew firearms and locked the family members in one of the rooms in the house. They then asked the homeowner to give them all the money kept in the house for the stokvel. They took the sum of R20 000 and the cell phone and left,” he said.
Mthembu urged members of the community not to keep the large sum of money with them, alternatively divide the money inside the bank and deposit it into relevant bank accounts and rather do an EFT.
