Cape Town - A house in East London which belongs to star rugby twins Odwa and Akona Ndungane has been vandalised and stripped bare.

According to the HeraldLIVE website, the deteriorating state of the house in Baysville caught the attention of a neighbour, Dean Wilson, who noticed people coming in and out the house "carrying large items".

Wilson said people have been in and out of the house for more than two weeks.

According to the report, material in the place is scattered all over. The bathtub had been ripped from the bathroom and placed in the centre of what used to be a main bedroom and pieces of the toilet and cistern are broken next to it.

The front door of the house has been removed while some windows are broken. The property appears to also have been stripped of its copper and aluminium doors.

Odwa Ndungane confirmed he was aware of a burglary at their house. He then referred all other questions to his brother, Akona, who confirmed recently having had a tenant living at the house.  

Akona, who played wing for the Bulls and represented the Springboks in 11 Tests, retired from professional rugby last year.

Odwa still plays wing for the Sharks and has been capped nine times by the Springboks.
