[LISTEN] 'Cable theft at Joburg's data centre was an inside job'

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.

The way these cables were stolen, it is clear it is someone from inside who had information.

Lucky Sindane, Director for Strategic Stakeholder Management at the Group Forensic and Investigation Services

It is people that we are currently paying, people that were no longer going to benefit from us when we have this data center as a CP, as I indicated, we are spending R6 million a month and were going to minimize it.
