OHANNESBURG – Mpumalanga police are searching for the criminals responsible for torching two school buildings in Siyabuswa.
It’s believed angry residents were behind the crime in the early hours of Saturday morning, following a by-election in the Dr JS Moroka Municipality which didn’t yield the desired result for some.
Police say three classrooms were damaged at one school, while the staffroom was affected at another.
Police spokesperson Leonard Hlathi said: “This is uncalled for. We call it a sabotage to learners because you are stopping the process of learning and teaching. In that way, you are making the learners to be criminals tomorrow.”
