Car theft plagues at eMalahleni

Mr Mlungisi Gumbi from Klarinet pleads with the community in helping to find his stolen car.

Crime  struck in Klarinet Extension 8 when a resident’s vehicle was brazenly stolen from their yard.

The shocking incident has left the community reeling and the owner, Mr Mlungisi Gumbi feeling devastated.

On Sunday, May 12, at 8:00 Gumbi stepped outside to freshen up before heading to church when he spotted that one of his two cars had been stolen.

“I noticed the slide of the gate was broken, indicating that the suspects aggressively attempted to open the gate, and to my amasement, we did not even hear them opening it,” said Gumbi.

The stolen car is a purple Honda with registration number KSD 446 CH.

According to Gumbi, the vehicle is automatic with no insurance or tracker.


To this day, the vehicle has not been located, and the only evidence he saw, was the suspect’s footsteps, ‘‘I can’t sleep well since I’ve been worrying over my stolen car,” he said.

The incident serves as a stark reminder of the importance of vigilance and the need for collective efforts to combat car theft in the neighbourhood.
