Thieves have made off with two TV sets from national police commissioner Khehla Sitole’s Mpumalanga home, the SA Police Service (SAPS) confirmed on Monday.

Spokesperson Brigadier Vishnu Naidoo said the items were stolen by criminals who were “purely opportunistic”.

The commissioner’s house is under construction and the work was near completion when the theft occurred last Saturday while the general was attending a summit in Cape Town, Naidoo said.

Nothing else was stolen from the house.

News24 understands there was no sign of forced entry on to the premises.

Investigations are under way.
