Afro-Jazz diva Simphiwe Dana was hopping mad when she discovered tsotsis had made off with her garden equipment.
The songstress (39) reported a case of theft at the Norwood cop shop after realising her gas cylinder and hosepipe were missing. She told police she noticed after Christmas that her belongings had disappeared.
Read her statement, in part: “I realised my gas cylinder was taken from my house. It was in front of the car shade. There were no damages to the
house and around the yard.”
She said upon inspection she realised the cylinder wasn’t the only item that was stolen.
“I woke up in my home, mentioned above, and realised my hosepipe had also been taken. I don’t know how entry was gained to my house.”
Said police spokesperson Lungelo Dlamini: “This office confirms a case of theft, and that no suspect(s) have been identified.”
The Zandisile hitmaker said the items, worth approximately R800, were insured.
“I don’t know who the suspect is, I know and understand the contents of this statement. I have no objections to taking the preserved oaths.”
When contacted for comment, Simphiwe said she didn’t want to make a big deal of it.
“Yes, it happened, but I’d rather not talk about for safety concerns,” she said.
