The Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs MEC Nomusa Dube-Ncube has urged the eyewitnesses to reveal names or any useful information related to KwaZulu-Natal CoGTA Department offices’ arson. Nomusa Dube-Ncube has infamised the action and called it “barbaric”. She also said that the incident undermines democracy in the province and countrywise.
“But we will not succumb to criminals. We are going to continue to work to continue to deliver services to the people. The department has set aside, together with the police, an amount to the tune of R100,000 for anyone with information to come forward to that we can quickly apprehend the criminal. So, we call on the community to expose this person so they can be dealt with by our law enforcement agencies,” says a Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs spokesperson, Lenox Mabaso.
The offices of the Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs in KwaZulu-Natal have been set on fire during protests over land issues last night.
