THEY say lightning doesn’t strike twice in the same place . . . 
But that isn’t the case for Sipho “Big Fish” Makhabane.
The The Devil is a Liar
hitmaker was robbed of his belongings twice within a week.
This after his Kensington
offices, east of Joburg, were broken into by unknown thugs two weeks ago.
Big Fish told Sunday Sun thieves broke into his offices during the night and stole computers and other
He said just as he was busy repairing the damage and was in the process to replace the stolen goods, thieves
returned last week.
“On Tuesday, the same
offices were broken into and this time they took all the
cables, the printer, fax and scanning machine I had bought,” he said.
Big Fish told the People’s Paper he sees the burglary as a personal attack on him.
“I’ve lost valuable stuff. Those computers had all my work and the company’s data. Now I must start afresh,” he said.
He said the second break-in took place when he was busy beefing up the security at his office.
“They broke in the second time just as a security
company was about to install the alarm system, cameras and other security features,” Big Fish said.
He said the value of the stolen goods is more than R100 000.
“They took four expensive computers and everything they could carry.
“Then they came back for the printers. What would have happened if someone was there?
“They probably could have killed that person or that
individual could have killed them.”
Big Fish said he’s considered hiring security guards before, but the thought of someone getting killed in his yard kept him from doing so.
“If they came and found me there, someone would have died as I wasn’t going to let anyone take my stuff without a fight.
“I’m sad and angry, but I’ll pray for them. This is part of the life we’re exposed to as South Africans,” he said.
Police confirmed two cases of house breaking and theft was opened at Cleveland
police station. They said no arrest have been made.
