Cele said he was in “permanent” contact with legal representatives of the truck drivers. “We are trying to bring the Western Cape trucking problems and its organised people around a table regarding the attacks.”
This after a truck assistant suffered burns to his face and hands when a bread truck was allegedly petrol- bombed near Strand on Saturday.
Police spokesperson Andrè Traut said a 32-year-old sustained facial injuries and was admitted to hospital after a truck was petrol-bombed in Lwandle.
“Our investigation into the attempted murder and malicious damage to property led to the arrest of a 34-year-old suspect who made a court appearance in Strand yesterday. He will remain in custody until his next court appearance.”
