Investigation underway into the fire of an ANC building
13 June 2011
The ANC in KwaZulu-Natal is convinced that arson is behind the fire that damaged the party’s Pietermaritzburg office yesterday morning.
A group of ANC members had been holding a sit-in at the premises for the past 13 days, in protest against councillors allegedly imposed on the region.
They are also unhappy about the appointment of councillors accused of corruption.
One of the sit-in group's members Sibongile Mkhize claimed the intention with the fire was to destroy documents being kept in the room.
