The Gauteng Department of infrastructure MEC Jacob Mamabolo says the death of the firefighters “is a matter that should be a separate investigation.”
He said another investigation on the cause of the fire is must be conducted. “The laws of our country should take full course.”
He claims the process of moving workers from the burnt building was already underway. "From March 7 had started looking for an alternative building for the employees".
Mamabolo was giving an update regarding a fire at Bank of Lisbon building, a government building, in the CBD that claimed the lives of three firefighters.
“The real cause of the fire still has to be determined. Fire can start at any building even a new one,” he says.
A total of 1115 employees were safely evacuated from the building
“One health department employee and four firefighters are still in hospital.”
