A clinic in Pretoria was targeted by burglars, who stole 25 computers and other equipment.

The Gazankulu Clinic in Saulsville was robbed on Friday. The clinic is one of four to provide primary health care in the greater Atteridgeville area and provides important support services to the city of Tshwane’s Covid-19 vaccination campaign.

The burglars left “significant damage” in their wake, said City of Tshwane MMC for Health Rina Marx.

“I personally visited the clinic…to assess the extent of the damage and it immediately became clear that the damage was extensive,” she said.

“The intruders used crowbars to force their way inside the building, damaging the main gate and doors.”

No drugs were stolen in the burglary, Marx said.

“City officials are working with police to investigate the matter.”

The burglary came after five healthcare workers were robbed at gunpoint at a pop-up vaccination site in Soshanguve, also in the town of Tshwane, on Friday.
