Polokwane - Offices belonging to the Polokwane municipality were petrol bombed on Wednesday morning after the council disconnected electricity to residents who had been defaulting on their payments.
The municipality executive mayor Councillor Thembi Nkadimeng said the incident happened after residents revolted against the local housing rental body.
Furniture and computers were incinerated at the wooden office at the Ga-Rena rental village.
The village is on R35 million worth land featuring 501 residential units designed for low-income earners who don't qualify for a bond or RDP housing.
Nkadimeng said they were not deterred by the arson attacks, and said her municipality would continue to disconnect the water and electricity of defaulting residents.
