Copper cables costing around R2 million were stolen from the City of Johannesburg's data centre in Braamfontein .
The stolen cables were connected to two power generators which were recently purchased.
At the time, City of Johannesburg Mayor Herman Mashaba raised his concern of a robbery in a place which protects people's information.
The City's Group Forensic and Investigation Service is currently investigating the theft.
Director, Lucky Sindane believes it was an inside job.
