Kingi says that he heard commotion from downstairs but by the time he got to the sitting room, the robbers had already done the looting and left.

“Some of the things they have managed to get away with are: a 55 inches TV and a laptop belonging to one of my kids.” Said Kingi.

He has however noted that no one was injured during the robbery.
