Another Lim­popo school torched

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Opinion/worldwide -

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
