Another Limpopo school torched
MALAMULELE — A school and three classrooms have been torched in the Limpopo village of Mukhomi, near Malamulele.
Police said they received a report from residents at about 0230hrs yesterday alerting them to the blaze.
“Police received information in the early hours of this morning and, on arrival, three classrooms and a staff room were on fire,” said Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo.
Mojapelo said firefighters were called and the fire was extinguished.
He said the motive for the incident was not known and no arrests had been made.
Meanwhile, fire investigators from the forensic division in Pretoria were expected to visit the scene to assist in the probe. In June last year, mid-year examinations were disrupted after another fire destroyed exam papers and other school records.
Five administration offices and three storerooms that contained five laptops, a computer, and sports kit donated by the Lotto fund, all worth about R180 000, were destroyed. — Sapa
