eMbalenhle township is one of the places that have many people from various places across the country. As a result, there are many rooms rented out but take extreme caution as thieves are targeting bachelors 

Almost all the sections in eMbalenhle have a room that is rented out to an individual.

There is a new criminal activity that is happening around eMbalenhle; thieves are targeting individuals who stay in rented outside rooms.

The thieves come around midnight or in the early hours of the morning. They knock on the door and when the occupant asks: “Who is there?” the thieves keep quiet and eventually leave.

If this happens and no one responds when the thieves knocked, they will break into the room and help themselves to the belongings of the occupant.

In instances where they know that the room is rented by a female occupant, they will try to break in and steal anything they want.
