On Thursday morning, four vehicles completely burnt down after an arsonists’ attack in Thembalethu, a part of the George municipality.
According to the reports, one of the destroyed cars belonged to a Go George bus driver, while others were the traffic officers’ property
It is believed the fires are connected to the recent taxi drivers’ protests and the accumulated unrest within the industry in general. However, the information has not been confirmed by the police yet. The officers only stated that the investigation was underway and the perpetrators would be found shortly.
“We believe two of the vehicles were petrol bombed while the other was first covered in petrol before they torched it,” Police spokesperson Captain Malcolm Poje advised.
