JOHANNESBURG, March 18 (Reuters) - Robbers stole 15 computers containing personal information on South Africa's judges from the administrative offices of the Chief Justice on Saturday, local media reported.

"It's a huge concern and all the judges will be made aware. We believe that we will be able to manage the information and hopefully nothing serious will occur," Chief Justice spokesman Nathi Mncube told eNCA television.

Mncube said police were investigating.
