Stellenbosch - Looters have taken advantage of a fire that swept through a Stellenbosch informal settlement by making off with mobile toilets meant for the homeless, it was reported on Sunday.
Stellenbosch mayor Conrad Sidego told the Weekend Argus that 30 mobile toilets were made available on Friday, but that only five remained by Saturday.
He called on locals to show responsibility, adding that the municipality was “not in the business of fostering a victim mentality”.
Two people were killed when the fire raged through the township, gutting 1250 shacks. - Sapa
