Cape Town - A City of Cape Town councillor’s home was burnt down on Thursday, allegedly by a group of protesting residents from the Marikana informal settlement in Philippi East.
The police and city law enforcement officers were on scene at the house of ANC councillor Mzuzile Mpondwana, who was not home at the time of the attack.
No injuries were reported.
According to the ANC chief whip in the city, Xolani Sotashe, the entire house was destroyed.
“I’ve just spoken to him (Mpondwana). He’s fine but his house has been burnt down with everything that was inside,” said Sotashe.
