REPORTS that men tried to gain access to a Komani home under what is believed to be false pretences, have been circulating on social media today.
According to posts on facebook, men in a white bakkie, with an Eskom logo on the side, tried to gain access to a home in Jade Place earlier today.They claimed to be there for work, but left when they were denied access. CCTV camera footage were then studied with a reliable source indicating that the registration number of the vehicle did not match the make.
Concern has been raised that it might have been a foiled robbery.
Police spokesman Captain Namhla Mdleleni said while no related case had been reported to the police, residents should remain vigilant and not allow strangers access to their homes. Last year, incidences of people, claiming to be working for various bodies, were reported to have tried to gain access to Komani homes.
