The Commission will hear evidence from the National Council of Provinces chairperson Amos Masondo afterwards.
It is scheduled to hold an evening session at 4pm, to hear evidence related to parliamentary oversight, from ANC national chairperson and former secretary-general Gwede Mantashe. It is a continuation of his evidence from last week.
About the recent break in, the commission's secretary Professor Itumeleng Mosala told ENCA that a desktop computer and a laptop were stolen.
"We don't want to be dramatic about this thing, it could very well be something just petty criminal, but this is State Capture Commission and what is here is all sensitive," he.
Mosala said it was not the first recent incident. A bullet was fired through the window of the commission's library in the same building last week.
He did not want to draw any conclusions about whether the incidents were related to the upcoming appearance of President Cyril Ramaphosa at the commission next week.
