ANC con­stituency of­fices in Rose­bank, north­ern Joburg, were gutted by fire on Fri­day.

This comes three weeks af­ter a break-in

when com­put­ers and im­por­tant doc­u­ments were stolen at the same of­fice.

A state­ment from ANC chief whip Stone Sizane’s of­fice out­lined the dam­age done by the fire.

No­body was in­jured, but im­por­tant of­fice equip­ment and doc­u­ments have been de­stroyed, said the state­ment.

Sizane’s spokesman, Moloto Mothapo, said the fire broke out on Fri­day af­ter­noon while staff were hav­ing lunch in another part of the build­ing.

They started smelling the smoke and soon dis­cov­ered the fire was at the ANC of­fices,” Moloto said.

The con­stituency of­fice be­longs to ANC MP and Deputy Sci­ence and Tech­nol­ogy Min­is­ter
