Mr Danie Kruger lived in my house for the last two months as my boyfriend. He suggested that I resign from work as he is expecting a third party claim and will take care of me financially. On 31 July 2012, I left the house for my last day at the office. at 11h35 Mr Kruger phoned me, he told me that he will be working on a site in Rooiwal and that his parents are to arrive at Pretoria station at 15h00 that afternoon. Would I mind fetching them. I asked for the contact no of his parents, he replied that we would phone me back. I waited at the station till 19h30 that evening. His parents did not arrive. When I got home I noted that Mr Kruger removed all his personal belongings from the main bedroom. I went to my safe and tried to open the safe, I could not open the safe. Mr Kruger installed the safe a month ago, he also knew the code to the safe. I asked my tenant living in my garden flat to try and open the safe. He had to remove the safe and break it open.
