Suspicions that the break-in at the offices of Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng was no ordinary burglary have intensified as more details emerged about the man police believe holds the key to the theft of 15 laptops.

Sources close to the investigation said Nkosinati Msimango, whom police are hunting because he has “critical information” about the crime, was being protected by elements in the state security services.

The laptops containing sensitive information about judges and officials were stolen from Mogoeng’s offices on Saturday soon after key judgments critical of the government were handed down, sparking fear that members of the State Security Agency could have had a hand in the break-in, although this was denied.

A tip-off led investigators to Msimango’s Mamelodi home, where three suspects linked to the crime were arrested. Msimango was not at home.
