Known by Skeem Saam fans as the cheeky waitress Bontle, the popular actress Kea Leburu told Daily Sun that her bags were stolen from the boot of her car in December.

“A friend and I were buying pies at a garage in Randfontein and when we came back, our bags were missing. They were in the boot. We don’t know what happened to those bags to this day. We still don’t know how they got lost,” said Leburu. 

Leburu adds that the police haven’t been much help and the issue hasn’t been resolved as the video from the garage doesn’t play. 

“We just left things unattended because no one was saying anything. Even the cops didn’t get back to us.”

“We went to the garage to request that the owner show us footage and he said we must come with the cop and they would give it to us. We did that and we were given a memory stick. However, when I tried playing it on my laptop and the TV, it didn’t play.”

Gauteng police spokesman Lieutenant-Colonel Mavela Masondo revealed to Daily Sun that a case has been opened. 

“A case of theft out of a motor vehicle was opened at Randfontein Police Station. An investigation is underway and no arrests have been made yet.”
