“I was at home too but I didn’t hear anything,” Pienaar told the Sunday Times.

“I am still surprised as to how they managed to pass through the electric fence and the laser beams.

“It appears that it was people who were too familiar with my house’s security and who knew that I and my family were sleeping at the time,” Pienaar explained.
