Gauteng police are investigating after R3 million worth of school equipment was stolen from Esithebeni Primary School in Soweto.

The school was broken into on Friday night. 

Office computers, computer lab equipment and learner’s smart boards were stolen. 

"For someone to come in and do these things in our primary schools breaks our heart," Gauteng MEC for education Panyaza Lesufi said.

"We are honestly emotionally drained and devasted, it’s a huge investment. But we are here with the police and community leaders and are convening a community meeting. The community must tell us who did this."
