THE ANC Sedibeng regional offices were burnt down in the early hours of Monday morning.
The ANC Gauteng Province said it condemns in the strongest possible terms acts of criminality by unknown arsonists who burned their offices.
Gauteng ANC provincial executive committee spokesperson Tasneem Motara said that at this stage, the report they have from the caretaker, who was in the property at the time, is that he was awakened by the sound of breaking windows and the next thing he knew the building was set on fire.
He escaped unharmed from the incident.
A case of arson is being opened this morning with the Vereeniging SAPS so that the police can help to bring to book those behind this criminal act.
“The burning of our offices is tantamount to an attack on the people of Sedibeng and it is an act of cowardice by people who want to use violence and threats to undermine the work of the ANC in the Region,” said Motara.
