Johannesburg - They say lightning never strikes twice in the same place, but they may not be true when it comes to Jazz muso Feya Faku and burglaries.

Feya, who is one of the country's most famous trumpeters, had his house broken into for the second time in little over a month, with thugs making off with his prized trumpets.

According to Sunday World, Tsotsi's ransacked Feya's Linden home last week, making off with three trumpets, a television, a sound system, iPad, iPhone, jewellery and cash.

Feya says he was out at breakfast with his sons when the break in happened.

"As we were approaching the house, I saw the gate half-opened but I thought I didn't open the gate. When we went inside, we realised that the gate was off the rail, and that the doors were hacked; it was a terrible sight," Feya recounts.

"These are special instruments. They're handmade," Feya says of his trumpets. "I fear that they would sell them for copper. I hope that at least let them be sold to someone who can use them," he adds.

Linden police have confirmed that a case of residential burglary had been opened.
